These flowers just felt like the day. Yesterday was a lovely Seattle September day. The sun was shining, the air was a bit crisp, and these zinnias were just grand. I love the gracefulness of the first few weeks of this month as Summer does its final dance. You see it and you feel it. These zinnias were a reminder of the beauty of the last few months and a look ahead to the specialness that is Autumn. I think that it what most captivates me about flowers–they capture a moment in time, while also conjuring up memories of the past and a glimpse into the future.
