thank you all. I'll write more today after work.
Looks like it might be cutleaf coneflower, Rudbeckia laciniata.
Oh I hope so. I love coneflowers! Owww I hope so. I'm so excited. I'll share a newer photo tomorrow.
Watch out for the common name Coneflower. Some people use it for Echinacea and others use it for Rudbeckia. Yours will be a yellow flowered daisy if the id is right.
