Today's Flowers: Brown-Eyed Girl

From Wildflowers

I know these are black-eyed Susans, but I don't see black; I see brown. The centers make me think of Clyde's little wet nose, so I may just rename them for myself as Clyde's noses and call it good. These guys sprouted a few days after the tornado that wasn't that actually was after a proper review of the amateur video footage. We've got it all here in Connecticut, that's for sure. We have also the lesson that if you stay close to the ground, Mother Nature is less likely to mow you down on a bad-hair. You live. Your learn. You blossom.

  3. I like the name Clyde's noses much better. People all through the rest of history will wonder who Clyde was! I often rename things or give people names to certain trees. As my daughter used to say, "They are real to me".

  9. Hi Sandy ~~ In Yankee Land they are Black-eyed Susan. But Mrs. Jim, hailing from Louisiana, taught me that they were Black-eyed Susans.

  11. I might start calling them Clyde's noses also. You can learn from nature, stay low, stay flexible and you stand a better chance.
