Skipping

Though many flowers are gone now, the Zinnias are all still blooming. Here are some of the palest pink ones. The skippers love them, and more than one will be on a flower. The meaning of this flower was started in Victorian times. They said it means thoughts of an absent friend.





“But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity.”

Galatians 5

I like zinnias. I should plant some next year. Then again, I'm not very good with gardening so maybe I should just admire someone elses

I tried to zinnias but it was no successful. Maybe I should try again. The pink zinnas are very pretty!

when your blog opened I sat staring in awe at the header, I even said Oh Ginny out loud. I LOVE this beautiful moth. the photos are amazing... I love zinnias and have never grown any. black thumb is what I have. but now I might try seeds in a pot and see what happens.. I don't mind killing seeds with my black thumb, but buying expensive plants to kill is in the past... I do love flowers and the moth is a flying flower.. awesome post

I love zinnias and yours are so pretty in that pale pink. The Scripture is so true and something we all need to be reminded of daily! His way is perfect!

It looks like my garden of zinnias too. But the one with the butterfly is totally different than I have ever had. It is beautiful.
