Photo of the Day: ‘Cherry Brandy’ (Black-Eyed Susan), Berkshire Botanical Garden, MA

Though I visited the Berkshire Botanical Garden in late August three years ago, I have found this Stockbridge, MA institution a continuing visual feast ever since.

The formal name of this wildflower is Rudbeckia hirta. But most people (myself very much included) know it as a “black-eyed Susan.” The hues giving rise to the name “Cherry Brandy” led me to take this photograph.
