I try to remember to call them Rudbeckia, but since I grew up in Maryland, I think I will always think of them as Black Eyed Susans (the state flower of Maryland.)

We saw this peculiar little plant while waking in Grant Grove at Sequoia National Park

I’ve added zinnias to the list of things that can survive even my attempts at gardening.  The zinnias have survived being planted in a bed that was water-logged so much this summer that I was surprised anything could survive.  They also survived several hail storms and a few pounding rains.

We were surprised by how much was still blooming at the Denver Botanic Garden in September. I hope I can remember that I want to plant some celosia next spring.

I like these dyc volunteer flowers almost as much as some that I’ve planted.

I’ve had more blossoms off this day-lily plant this year than in previous years. I used to think the ruffly effect meant that the bloom had been damaged in the bud, but now think it may be a the way it is supposed to be. Anyone know?

These day-lilies didn’t so much bloom as explode. The blossoms are huge: as big as my spread hand.

This photo of my other variety of columbines is prettier than the real thing. I think I bought the originals based on what the bloom looked like photo. In reality, these columbines always remind me of Victorian half-mourning. If they ever fail to reseed themselves, I will manage to bear up under the disappointment.

I am a little embarrassed by these zinnias. I thought, when I grabbed the annual pack, that I was picking up marigolds. My gardening is all about the tried-and-true, survives even in Colorado. I hope the deer don’t like zinnias.
