Black-Eyed Susans

Or is it Brown-eyed Susans?  Rudbeckia at any rate.  I've had a clump of these along the steps for many years.  They do well here, which I find strongly in their favor.  That, and the fact that I like daisies.  Last year I had the inspiration to dig up some crowns and transplant them along the path to the tool shed, outhouse, and points north.  A year later, this is what our path now looks like.  They obviously appreciate the drip irrigation system I installed this spring.

Here's a closeup.  This is one project that turned out very well.
