A Zinnia for You...


Hello again dear blog, I am SOOOO sorry for the long departure... I should have at least told you that I would not have my camera for a week, but I really didn't get the time to, plus I don't like to post without adding some interest with pictures. My sister had to borrow my camera for the week since she was going on vacation down the Outer Banks and doesn't have a digi camera of her own. I told her to get a disposable, but then I gave in. One week wouldn't hurt... well it kinda did ;) I have had soo many things in the past week to take pictures of and share, but I had no camera. So oh well, she enjoyed her trip and came back with amazing pictures.
As for todays post, its a quickie, since I don't have much time. For the past few weeks I have been obsessed with going to the local farm where they carry home grown fruits and veggies as well as flowers galore plus tons of other things. They have their own zinnia garden where you can pick as many as you want, just pay for a pair of scissors and get started. I must confess I did not actually go and cut these from the acre of zinnias, but I did pick them from a huge flower holder. For those of us who don't the time, as much as we would like to have, they go and restock that bin every few hours full of fresh colorful zinnias. I love zinnias, they're a happy flower, last long and the colors are amazing. You can see I found a use for those vintage jars in the previous post, and oh how I'm lovin them!! I got some more flowers at the stand, and plan to go back this week for more. Next post, is ummm... well we'll see on Thursday!! Wishing you garden bliss and summertime color!!

I love zinnias and was just thinking the other day, that I am missing them in my garden this year. I've always thought of them as a happy flower too.
They look especially so in that old jar. Wonderful photos!
