Brown eyed Susans are charming me again. They have re-seeded themselves all over the place. It always frustrates me how they come up wherever the wind blows them and not always where I'd like them to be. Still, they are most welcome. They are like a friend you can always count on = ). Botany.com tells me they have the name 'Rudbeckia' and are a hardy herbaceous perennial and annual. They come from N.America and of course belong to the daisy family. Some of thier names are so pretty. How about, Golden Sunset, Indian Chief, or Autumn Glow? They sure can take the heat and yet be sturdy and cheerful. Do I sense a spiritial application here? Ouch!
