My response to Carpe Diem #1720 Zinnia

The next flower in our field is the zinnia, a showy flower which comes in almost any colour.

  1. blowsy is most apt — when the zinnias begin to fade, the petals take on such a matte, dusky, sandpaper quality – it’s rather remarkably odd, but fascinating … and showgirls? LOL – they do so remind one of that kind of frivolity!

    lovely Kim 🙂
