country side phOTTography: black eyed susan

Ott, E took this picture last week of some Black Eyed Susans growing in a field.  (I kind of like these flowers because they remind me of sunflowers and we all know how crazy I am about sunflowers.  And they are related to sunflowers.) 
This post was linked to Outdoor Wednesday  and Wordless Wednesday at Live and Love Outloud.

Those are very pretty - could hardly tell you liked sunflowers though (lol).

Nothing prettier than a field of flowers in the summertime!

What says summer more than these happy flowers. I haven't had much luck growing them myself but sometimes treat myself to a big bunch from the store.

That's a very unique name for the flower! I thought it was sunflower until I saw the name. They sure remind me of sunflower too.

I love not only the color, but the fact that they tend to care for themselves and grow wild.

Great photo! I have come to appreciate Black Eyed Susans as they are so hardy and easy to care for.

I've always liked black-eyed Susans too.. though I feel a bit put off by the name, in the same way that I am a bit offended by "lazy Susans" being that my name is Susan. As a kid I thought that black-eyed peas and black-eyed Susans were the same thing and always wanted "my" peas for dinner. ;-)

Thanks for visiting my blog! You have a lovely one. Those black-eyed susans are beautiful. We have to buy them as garden plants here in Oregon. The closest thing we have would be what we call Mule's Ears.

Oh so beautiful!! I wish some of these silly corn and soy bean farmers around us would get with the picture and plant flowers. A corn field isn't the most beautiful photo!!
