Nearly extinct!!

Some of our favorite summer flowers at Barn Cat Mansion are

Brown Eyed Susans.

Actually, they're wild brown eyed susans.
We used to have a lot of wild tiger lilies until two little boys picked most of them off the hillside, about 25 years ago.  A beautiful, gigantic bouquet presented to their mother/stepmother caused almost a total decimation of the flower in the area. 

Don't worry.  They have made an amazing comeback and should be back to normal in another 25 years. :)

  1. That is a shame about the tiger lilies, but nature always finds a way. Beautiful brown eyed susans, they must look spectacular.
