Summertime Stars

These Black-Eyed Susans are the legacy of a foray onto a bank of wild flowers at Schmiede Tree Expert Company on South Avenue many years ago. Mr. Schmiede gave me permission to collect seedheads after the flowers had bloomed.
Some have petals in shades of yellw, others have markings in brown.

Some have double rows of petals.

Some are very large. All are a happy sight in summer. Thanks again, Mr. Schmiede!
