  1. Beautiful portrait! The last flowers are so poignant, aren’t they? And the funny thing is, if you go different places, you keep seeing a few more than you thought you would. The last may not be the last.

  2. Poignant—yes, Lynn. Thanks for that word and for the compliment. I didn’t expect to see any flowers left on the hill that day.

  4. Oops – technical malfunction! As I was saying….
    This flower lingers on late in the year. In the UK it is called Black-Eyed Susan. Don’t ask me why, but once you know it, it’s a name you are unlikely to forget. We were hoping to buy a clump of it for our garden, but decided to leave the decision until Spring. Is it the same name for you, Linda?

    • The one in the U.S. midwest that we call black-eyed Susan is a little different. The petals don’t droop, but the colors are the same. It’s also smaller. You can see it at https://lindagrashoff.wordpress.com/2016/08/08/home-sweet-home-hello-7/. The plant in this post is a yellow cone flower.

      • We have both in this country too, I think. Black-eyed Susan is a ‘populist’ term and I think it may be wrongly applied over here, although I had always thought it was the larger version that was Susan. But I am led by my wife in this instance – that’s a typical male cop-out, I must admit!
