From one tiny plant

Quite a few years ago I ordered a special 'deal' pack of several little plants... from somewhere. I don't remember what the other plants were, or where I planted them, or what happened to them... but one scraggly little plant was a black-eyed susan. It took off and over the years has spread. This year they're taking up a good portion of my wildflower bed, and they're looking gorgeous... the best they ever have!

(Cindy... the setting is 'Auto', zoomed from about 5 feet. Just thought you'd want to know that.) ;-)

On second thought, I believe my sedum was also in that little pack of plants. It's done very well, too. It's not blooming yet this year. Later.

My black-eyed Susans never seem to come back. Yours look lovely!

Thanks! I'd send you a hunk of mine if I could. :)

Every time we'd drive by that plant as a family we would always have some conversation about them. They'll always be sentimantally attatched to my mom! Those and Lazy Susans! Haha Yours are beautiful! I might have to plant some of my own some day!

So your mom had black eyes and was lazy? I don't know what color her eyes were, but I got the distinct impression she was NOT lazy! :)
