As I was walking along the road I noticed this beautiful flower growing among the plants on the bank. I snapped a couple of photos.

When I arrived home I looked online to see if I could find out what they were and I do believe the are a Black-eyed Susan vine. The flower on the vines are somewhat different to what I have known as a Black-eyed Susan, but since reading about it I discovered the same name is given to another species of flower called Rudbeckia. 

Here's a close up on one flower.

The leaves remind me a little bit of holly leaves, but they are wider. I made mine two tone, but they can easily be made in just one fabric.

The flowers are made in one fabric each, however they could be made as individual petals.
