Stain glass zinnias

Today was like a scripted from an enchanting story. The sky was cerulean blue with clouds that look like they were pulled from bottles of aspirin. The humidity was lower than yesterday, and a cool breeze out of the west kept blowing over our citrus trees on the back deck and making our chimes sing.

Each day, something new blooms. The zinnias started last week, but today, there were dozens of them showing their color.

The garden was in full sun when we walked, which is not great for shooting photographs. I didn't want to do the flowers a disservice, so I chose to use a recently discovered filter, which I'm probably overusing on this blog. But, tonight I just got home from a city council meeting, and you're going to have to cut me some slack on the picture :)


  1. Hooray for perfect and beautiful days.
