Reaching for the sun

At a time of year when most vegetation is winding down toward winter, the Old Maids (Zinnias) keep
reaching for the sun.
We planted these flowers many years ago and they come back every spring raring to go, and the later in the year it gets, the more beautiful they become.
They will bloom until frost. After that, they die back to nothing and next year when the days get warmer, they peep up and start the show all over again.
Speaking of shows, we played the first Friday Night Street Festival in Jasper, the county seat.
Our songwriting group started at 5 p.m. and played through until 8 p.m.
I'm whupped right now, so I'm making this a short post.
I hope you all have a great weekend.

    Another beautiful picture--just as I expected!!

    1. Thank you Fishducky. Have a good weekend.

  2. Three hours of playing, it's time to rest your fingers. The zinnias are such troopers, they hang on, still beautiful to the bitter end.

  3. Beautiful flowers!

  4. I love these flowers Rick... Congratulations on the show and have lots of fun with all the future ones you have:)

  5. Gorgeous Zinnias Rick. Glad you had a good show the other night.

  6. They are so pretty. Red is my favorite color so they are especially pretty to me.
