Black-eyed susans are the common name for these yellow petaled beauties that grace my front and back yards. My neighbors two doors down and across the street have lots of echinacea, purple cone flowers, and my goal is to have the yellow and purple flowers interspersed in my yard, instead of so much of the yellow.

These are lovely! I think Purple Coneflowers are my favourite garden flower. I started out with lots of Pink(purple) and a few yellow, but it seems the yellow flourish best, or are hardier and now are most in numbers. The butterfliies love them and I love the fact that the blossoms will remain now into late August or September. Your photo is very showy and colourful.
Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog yesterday, you made my day!
I love your PB pictures too, the one with your son at the bottom is my favourite one!
The yellow mixed with the purple should make an amazing sight!
I hope it happens for you!
Ann, there was a Monarch butterfly on my neighbor’s cone flowers last week. Too bad I didn’t have my camera.
Ilana-Davita, thank you, as always.
Jientje, you have such lovely photos on your blog! I tried to interest my son in another Project Black project, but that was a one shot deal.
My grandfather called them sunflowers. He also had the huge sunflowers, the ones with the seeds, growing in his garden.
Bli neder, next week I’ll check out the black..
Therapydoc, they are probably related, cousins in the plant world. Batya, it’s fun. I bet you’d enjoy. I’ll try to clue you in when Anna starts a new color project.
Beautiful sunflower picture, it is my favourite flower !
