Black Eyed Susans

Back eyed susans have taken over the side yard of a lovely old Victorian house. You can see the long swath of yellow from two blocks away. The picket fence has temporarily failed in its mission to promote order and create a sense of containment. Like that long ago crowd of music lovers at Woodstock, the flowers had spread beyond the space originally allotted to them. They all looked in the same direction, enjoying the summer sun. Like those Woodstock flower children, soon they will be gone. The fence will remain.
