Introduced as a garden plant, Black-eyed Susans can now be found growing wild along roadsides — and paths, which is where I found this one. (These were one of my mother's favourite prairie flowers, but I don't see them often anymore.)
After the bright yellow rays catch your eye, linger on the velvety brown disk florets at the centre of this Black-eyed Susan.
