A bit of sunshine

By ColleenA
Good morning from another day of wet weather in Cape Town
I have been missing the sunshine and also my flower photography so have decided to give my wildlife a rest for a few days.
This flower image was captured in Helsinki a few weeks ago. Could someone ID it for me please.
Have a great Friday.........GrinGrinGrin

Good morning Colleen !- I asked my wife about the flower,she is quite good in that, and she said it is " vuorenkilpi ", we have the same flowers growing in our yard. I tried to find the English word,but several dictionarys didnt know anything about it. Anyway a beautiful image with high Colleen standards. GrinGrinGrin ---- Jukka

Possibly a Black Eyed Susan (google seems to show vuorenkilpi as a bergenia). A sunny disposition whichever GrinGrin
