One of our first finds was a patch of Black Eyed Susans, one of my favorite wild flowers.
The flowers seeds we planted earlier this spring had started to bloom so we picked a couple of those, too.
As I looked at these pictures it took me a little while to realize why they captivated me so. It finally dawned on me that it was the sunshine. After 3 weeks of nearly constant rain and gloomy weather it was so refreshing to see the sun again.
