My flower garden was lush earlier this week.
Even in a small flower garden, serenity thrives.
Summer is passing quickly. The cicadas' call marks the time. Last night I was surprised to see a few lightning bugs rising up out of my zinnias. It has been so hot and humid here that the robins, chickadees, and even the squirrels sit around on the tree branches and ground looking deflated, mouths open, trying to catch their breath.
This is my favorite zinnia of the season so far. I am hoping to be able to save some seeds from it. It is the prettiest, bright, clear pink coral color. It came from a packet of California Giant Zinnias.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.
