Hooked on Black Eyed Susan

It’s been a while since I’ve taken you on a walk, and things have changed in the yard.  The Black Eyed Susans are splashing their sunshine everywhere.  The Munchkin by the flowers

I could never grow them on our rocky shaded lot in Pennsylvania.  But I’m more than making up for it here!  And to think, I started out with just two little straggly pots that I brought with me! 

Front Yard 3They s-p-r-e-a-d and transplant so easily, that I now give pots of them away in the spring.  I feel so RICH!!Black Eyed Susan and Pink Cone Flower

Our large front beds are full of Black Eyed Susan and Pink Cone Flower, and against the backdrop of the ornamental grasses, they make a dense and beautiful screening.  No longer can passing cars see us eating dinner at the table.  :)

We also have them around just about every tree in the yard.  Here are a few trees in our back yard with their yellow skirts. It’s what I see when I look out the window by my computer.  Black Eyed Susans have replaced the purple Irises that decorate those places in the spring.Back Yard 2

And this is our back patio.  Well, it’s just a stoned in area, but we hope to  pour cement in the future.  Like all my umbrellas?  It gets hot in Indiana! Back yard patio area

I even have them back the drive and surrounding our present camp site.  I know, I may have gotten a little carried away… Our Back Yard

But, what can I say?  I just love Black Eyed Susans!  And little boys in yellow shirts…Lol!  In fact, they’re two of the Finest Things in Life!

Have a wonderful Friday!!
