Mother Nature again.........

We have been blessed with several good rains the last week or so, but some trees are shedding leaves. These perfect little heart-shaped redbud tree leaves are plastered all over the deck.
And finally, some wonderful bright colors of zinnias! One of my summer favorites; I can bring some into the house to enjoy and they last for many days! This rich yellow just looks like a burst of sunshine.
This hot pink zinnia is my favorite so far! I don't know what it is with getting older and liking brighter colors, but I'm hearing the same from others enjoying our "golden years"! These make me want to get out my watercolors and brushes again.............

My mother loved zinnias too. She grew them every year. I like their bright faces, but can't stand the feel of them. I can handle them in a bouquet if someone else picks them, but that's it!

Thanks for sharing your sunshine.

I love zinnias. They remind me of my childhood. Mama grew them.
