Black-Eyed Susan

I've tried a fair few seeds in the garden, most just disappear and nothing shows up, but now and again something takes. The Californian Poppies have taken over a corner and I'd been wondering what this other one was with really dark leaves. It's finally flowered and it turns out it's a Black-Eyed Susan. Yay! I mean, yay at it growing and being beautiful, but who the hell was Susan and what happened to her eye? Let's assume she wore a lot of mascara.

The elephant hawk moth caterpillar got killed by something. There was a local cat toying with it on the path, but it might have just discovered the body. Who knows. It's a moth murder mystery.
