Black Eyed Susans

(Toledo, OH) One of my earliest memories is walking along the back fence of my grandparents' house in Michigan, a then-rural place outside of Detroit, and seeing hundreds of these dazzling black-eyed Susan flowers smiling at me.

It now seems almost surreal, this memory of wandering in the midst of these yellow flowers. These days the acres of open space behind their house are filled with the activity associated with a gravel pit, and I have been unable to see a single yellow blossom on my recent visits to their house in the summertime.
