black eyed susans

080210


Seeing Black Eyed Susans makes my mind flash to a photo taken many years ago, I must have been six or seven years old in the photo. My blond hair is in pigtails (I always liked to pretend they were dog ears) and I'm wearing a yellow bathing suit with flowers on it. I was at the creek with my mom and in the photo I'm really smiling (I look a wee bit ornery too), so I assume I must have been having fun - I usually did with my mom. Boy, was that little girl clueless about where her life would lead! I cannot even be positive that Black Eyed Susans bloomed on the banks of the creek. But in my far away memory, they are blooming there still.

  3. I just went through your blog to see what I missed while on vacation and wow did I miss some wonderful images!

    BLack eyed susans have been a favorite of mine since childhood too! We just got back from Rocky Mountain National Park and I was surprised to see how they grew wild even towards the summit of the mountatin where it gets fairly cold this time of year! Your image is just beautiful, and so cheerful!

  5. We're all clueless about where I lives will lead -- at any age. It took me 50 years, but I finally started thinking more about where my life is than where it's going.

    And I've never been happier than I am today.
