    1. Yes, they sure do! We gathered several to decorate our table at a brunch a couple of weeks ago. (Not from this garden at the museum, but the same flowers.)

  2. black eyed susans definitely brighten August days. I've had huge bouquets of them INSIDE last week. Stunning whether inside or out. Your post reminds me, I need to visit the mission again.

  3. I am glad you are back...... I don' t hve those flowers, but i have this year lots of sunflowers in yellow and red and everything in between. Although they are not super because of the bad summer with lots of rain and wind, they brighten the house and the garden.

  17. So pretty and cheerful. We lived in Olathe a million years ago - love the flowers in that area - especially when the sunflowers start to bloom along the roadsides. It is fun to see what grows naturally in many areas - in N. California it was Bachelor's Buttons - in Kansas the sunflowers (but the black-eyed Susans in the gardens are fabulous too), in Texas the Bluebonnets, in California the poppies, hillsides of them, and wild lupine - and here in NW Washington we often come across masses of wild floxgloves and daffodils. I'd never lived where there were wild daffodils before.
