Lance Leaf Coreopsis

Repost, last year same time, and yup - the clock of the world is running on time, complet with washout rain.

Common: Lance Leaf Coreopsis
or Lance-leaf tickseed
Coreopsis Lanceolata
Family: Asteraceae
The family Asteraceae or Compositae (known as the aster, daisy, or sunflower family) is the largest family of flowering plants in terms of number of species (and are noted for complex centers, each containg many "micro" flowers)

Because of the "lancing" each Lance Leaf Coreopis appears to have many petals, however, each flower comes with only eight.
