Good morning, dear Ruth. It's amazing to me that we have so many flowers in bloom at this late date in the calendar, for we have had little sunshine this summer in Scotland.

All beautiful but I do so love Black Eyed Susans.

Good morning, smilnsigh, and a warm welcome to our little corner of paradise. I love them too :)

I'm quickly becoming obsessed with black-eyed susans because of the differences. I saw one of mine bloom that looked like yours. A nice difference. Actually I'm surprised that they are in Scotland! (I know little about them).

A wonderful post for the end of summer.

I have been enjoying looking at your photos, especially th flowers as I like to take photos of the flowers in my garden too.
We have a big problem with the viper's bugloss in australia. It is a very virulent problem in sth eastern states where it escaped from someone's garden decades ago and has taken over a lot of farm land & pasture. Stock won't eat it. Just to show that we shouldn't take nature out of it's own habitat. But yes it is pretty when it is in flower. It is called "Patterson's Curse" around here. In South Australia it is known as Salvation Jane and it is sold in flower makets in Sydney as Riverina Bluebell.
