I like this flower a lot and it's very happy in my garden.

Please identify this beautiful flower.

So pretty! It's a variety of Rudbeckia, generally known as "black-eyed Susan" or "brown-eyed Susan".
Such a cheerful thing to have in a garden.

Funny Netiejay, I thought it look more like a gillardia. So I looked it up. Gillardia is also known as the brown-eyed Susan and also the blanket flower.

No wonder I get confusedSmile

Looks like blanket flower to me, gillardia.
But BES are different, at least the ones I grow are. They have a different leaf and the flower center stands up taller than in the pic.

I grew gaillardia 'blanket flowers' for years till one recent summer when they failed to drop any volunteer seeds. My blanket flowers always had larger, fuzzy centers, unlike the tight, shiny centers in putul's photo.
My blankets' leaves smelled similar to chrysanthemums when crushed. I'm not sure if rudbeckias do or not.

Here's a pageful of images of black-eyed Susans...

... and here's my own photo of the last blanket flower plant I had two years ago:
