 Happy Monday!  Starting off this week with a flower from a plant that was about a year in the making.  I had photographed and, I think, shared a flower from this before but it is currently in it's spot in the garden and flowering well.  This is a Rudbekia flower.  I had it planted it last June, it died while I was away so restarted it in late July.  I had it in my office over the winter where it bloomed with a couple of flowers and then transplanted it to it's spot in the garden where it promptly wilted because we were having 90 degree temps early on.  It has since cooled off and we got some rain and it seems to be doing very well now and currently has 4 blooms on it at once.  Very happy as it was kind of an ordeal.
