Macro Monday - Black Eyed Susans


Simple yellow daisies, or Black Eyed Susans grow wild by the road side almost everywhere.  They are so ubiquitous that we take them for granted or even regard them as a weed.  Planted in a large group they are quite handsome.  Black-eyed Susans are biannual which means they live for two years. In the first year, the plant grows a rosette, which is a group of leaves growing from the center, low to the ground. In the second year, the plant sends up flower stalks. At the end of the second year, the plant dies.

One man's weed is another man's herbaceous border delight. They are delightful.

Kind of sad to think they have only a two-year lifespan, but they certainly beautiful while they are around!

These flowers always take me back to my childhood, they grew on the banks of the creek my mom would take me swimming in.
