While cutting flowers in the front garden last weekend, I spied the strangest Rudbeckia I've ever seen. I had to look twice and blink my eyes to make sure I was seeing just exactly what I was seeing....here it is
Yes, you are seeing correctly. The flowers in the front of the picture got hung up on the "black-eye machine"!
I'm going to save the seeds but they probably won't come back like this. It's always fun to see different things like this in nature; well, fun as long as it isn't a frog with three eyes or something different like that!
