Well, I finally know what this flower's name is, it's called an Irish Eyes Black-Eyed Susan! My friend Robin, who gave this plant and three others to me a couple of months ago, let me know what this was called, and what a surprise! Who knew this flower came in different variants? I certainly didn't! I am especially delighted with this unusually colored flower because I am attracted to less common things--in this case, a Black-Eyed Susan with a green eye instead of black! COOL!!! :D

I wonder if these flowers are getting a snooty attitude with all the pictures I've been taking of them! Since they've formed as buds, I have been out there nearly every day taking countless pictures while they've matured into these truly magnificent blossoms. Today I had a great time taking pictures of the two flowers which are most mature, and I have three other pictures to share today. What a fabulous reward for my minimal care of providing water and protection from the deer. Such a special gift to me. Thank you Robin!!! I look forward to taking pictures of the flowers from the other three plants as well! :)

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (born 18 July 1918) is a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative, multiracial election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation. Politically an African nationalist and democratic socialist, he served as the President of the African National Congress (ANC) from 1991 to 1997. Internationally, Mandela was the Secretary General of the Non-Aligned Movement from 1998 to 1999. Wkipedia: Nelson Mandela

Beautiful work Janet! Next to red, yellow is my favourite colour and you have captured it perfectly. I also love the Mandela quote...he is one of the few historical figures that I put on a pedestal and I pray that if he is not to recover that at least his last days can be peaceful and free of pain.
