Bud to Bloom - Black-eyed Susan


Rudbeckia - Black-Eyed Susans, from bud to bloom


buds opening


black-eyed Susans buds and 1 blooming


many stages of blooming





fat, top hat shaped seed head,
once dried I can harvest for reseeding, 
if the birds don't beat me to it


 sunny faces reaching for the sky


What is blooming by you this week?




  Until next time,

  9. They're pretty. Because we have been having a little cooler than normal weather, I have a few roses that started to bloom.

  11. That's the second time I've seen them today, and today was the first time I'd heard of them. Isn't that the way that happens? They are just lovely.

    1. They are a pretty common flower around my parts (WI) and look nice blooming with other fall type flowers.

  12. Black eyed Susans have long been one of my favorites. I've never seen the top-hat shaped center, though.

  14. The only thing that's blooming by me is weeds! My veggie garden is just about done, and I'm getting ready to tear it down :( All my fresh veggies gone! I had sliced tomato with my dinner with some celery salt on it and mmmmm sooooo tasty! No more zucchini, but I do have one left in the fridge, and I'm going to make some zucchini bread... my first try! Wish me luck! Hey girlfriend, do you have a good recipe I can follow???

    1. I have seen the big Top Hat on some of my black-eyed Susans for a couple years. makes it nice if you are trying to harvest to share or add more planting areas. Plus the birds love them.
