My garden has been growing all season and I have enjoyed looking out my window at the pink zinnias and orange cosmos.
In anticipation of a hard frost this week I picked all the pink zinnias that were still blooming. I'll miss seeing the flowers that we planted in the spring, but can anticipate the spring when we can plant some more.
Here are the last bouquets.
One bouquet looks a little strange because one of the windstorms we had this summer blew the plant over. I never tried to straighten it back up so the flowers all turned and grew up toward the sun. Then when picked they point down toward the table, unless of course you cut the stems above the curve, which I didn't do this time.
