TODAY'S FLOWERS - A Riot of Colour


Saturday mornings we often go the Angaston farmers' market
and stop in for a few things in the township as well.

I like to get in a quick walk so imagine my surprise to see mass
plantings of Zinnias making a wonderfully bright showing.
I have not seen these flowers used in parks and gardens in over
50 years and was thrilled to see them making a comeback!


I think many of us remember them from mother's or
grandmother's garden.


They certainly brightened the day for me.



Keep your eyes open for the wonder of flowers and keep posting!

  4. They are definitely one of my favorites. I always have at least 1 bed full of zinnias. They just keep blooming and looking beautiful for most of the hot part of the summer.

  9. Dear Arija, your colourful pictures of the Zinnias also brighten my day! Here in Austria, Zinnias are still grown in gardens. My mother grows them every year! But I have never seen so many of them in one place as in your photos! Here in Austria spring has sprung last week and the first blossoms enjoy our heart! Have a nice week ahead!
