OH NO! One of your sneezes reached me at 160 kilometres an hour and I woke with a sore ear and throat! Your Zinnia has made me smile though :)

BetteJo said...

C'mon, you need to start feeling better, really!

Im curious about the title of your new post today."Surrogate SUN"
Hope our day will be brighter than yesterday.

Lavender said...

Anon Oh NO! Thats how it started, sorry Anon! Hope you can avert a full blown episode - its a doozy this one - that zinnia is so sunny, Im glad you got a smile! :)

BetteJo Yes please! I rather thought I should be a bit better today, but am bit worse instead - Bummer! I will try harder for tommorrow :)

i love my zinnias. i've planted a separate garden of them the last two summers, and jb and i have fresh flowers all season from them.

happy thanksgiving, lavender, from the u s of a. :)

Lavender said...

Seth Hope the Boston weather is nice for a fall day for you.

KJ Oh yes! Thanksgiving...already! Funny how you forget this sort of stuff after a couple years......Could you have a slice of pumpkin pie for me? Tehhehehe
Zinnias are magnificent, and a whole garden of thier own is well deserved - what a show they must put on. I can imagine pretty vases all thru your house! :)

What beautiful shades of red and orange.

It looks rather like you were going to photograph the leaves in the background and the cheeky zinnia stuck its head up in the corner. I love it.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

That is a bright and sunny flower.

Lavender said...

Catherine Warm looking, isnt it? :) I was shooting those nasturtium leaves, when I got the idea to shoot the zinnia to the side like that, thought it would make a nice card later....havent got there yet! LOL

Captain Possibly bright enough for the Enterprise to see from space! LOL

Paula In Pinetop said...

Oh these flowers look just like my garden this past summer. Love the nasturtiums (spell???) in the background........Thanks for the little trip down memory lane to my garden, now asleep until next Spring.

I think here in New Mexico, USA my season is the opposite of yours is that right????

I love birds so will be back for inspiration.

Lavender said...

Hi Paula Youre right, our seasons are opposite, so its late spring here now (that Zinnia is very early, even for here!)
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I dont imagine winters in your part are very harsh, but no doubt still long and dreary - so please feel free to stop by to remember spring will come :)
Lots of birdy goodness here too - hope you enjoy your visit, Cheers!
