A Zinnia in the garden

Last year, I had a favourite sunflower. I watched it at every stage through the growing season and through the winter. And the stalk lingered long into a second year.

It’s been hard to find a new favourite flower this year. Much harder than I expected.

There was a mullein that I really liked. But I’m not sure it was this summer’s favourite flower.

This week I came upon this zinnia and for some reason it really struck me.

Can a bloom that lasts a week or so be your favourite flower?

I’ll be looking to see if the next blooms bring me as much joy.

My next free online workshop is on Thursday Sept 22 at 2pm Eastern Ö
