Eye Candy Friday

honey bee and brown eyed susan for carole knits

I grew up calling these flowers black-eyed susans but I think they are actually called brown-eyed susans. Either way I love ’em and the bees do, too and that’s a very good thing.

It’s also a very good thing that the weekend is here. Make the most of it, my friends!

    Ack! We just had a wasp invasion removed. No more stingy things! Ok, great photo as usual. I’ll just pretend i didn’t see that bee. And it will be a happy weekend without those buggers.

    I also know them as black-eyed Susans, but my neighbor calls them Brown Bettys. Lovely by any name (and good to see an active pollinator!)

    I love Black-eyed Susans. I planted them many years ago because they remind me of my grandfather who also loved them. Happy weekend!

    I think Black-eyed Susan used to be the more common (common) name but since the eye is brown, people started saying that. I just call them Rudbeckia.

    The bees have had a very good summer here, I am happy to see they are having a good summer there! I hope you and Dale have a fantastic weekend as well! XO

    If they’re perennial, they’re (technically) Rudbeckia, commonly black-eyed Susans. If annual, they’re called by any number of names — including brown-eyed Susans. So confusing . . . and who really cares? They’re lovely and charming and bee-friendly. :-) Have a great weekend! XO

    My garden is full of them right now and they sure do make me smile. It’s a working weekend for me, but I will look forward to your weekend pictures! Have fun!
