Valentine's Greetings

Wishing Everyone a Sunny Valentine's Day

If you'd like to learn something about a completely different Valentine than whoever the saint was who gave name to this day, I propose a visit to the Valentine's Day post at my blog Through My Spectrespecs, about the 16th century Benedictine monk and alchemist Basil Valentine. 

Some people say that love is all about chemistry.
Others might say it's all about alchemy!

Lovely photo. Black eyed Susans? I'm heading to your other blog now. Happy Valentine's Day!

Did not know that name for the flowers but looking it up it seems to fit. We'd call them Rudbeckia, which name is also used in the same Wiki article. But I have to confess I did not remember that until I saw it in print now. It's one of those names I always forget!
