I wonder if these will attract any butterflies?

Did you know that the Black Eyed Susan is Maryland's State flower? Well, ours are blooming now, and Lanie is really excited about it. The Preakness Race often uses Black Eyed Susans as decorations at the track, but since the race is earlier than their normal bloom time, they actually paint other daisy varieties (imposters). At least, that is the way they used to do it years ago when I saw a news story about it!

Very pretty! I love Black-eyed Susans and also Coneflowers of all varieties.

Yes, I really like purple coneflowers and daisies, too! My husband thinks the black eyed susans look like weeds, but I disagree!
