Oh, Hell, the Black-eyed Susans are Back
The Black-eyed Susan is the Grim Reaper of Summer.
This horrific apparition signals the beginning of the end.
It may have been Wikipedia where I read that on average in Minnesota there are forty-two days per year where the temperature climbs above freezing. This is our “Summer.”
If you blink, you are likely to find a lurking presence in your yard: The ghastly Black-eyed Susan. (Scientific name: Harbingerium of Doomis.)
It’s time to put the ice scraper back in your car. The snow will be here soon.
