Flowers within Flowers

Dear friends, my week just zoomed by. It was filled with really nice business. Some chores, some creative projects, a little shopping and a lot of being out and about. This next week will be much of the same.

The temperatures have dropped a bit and that causes me to get busy! I finally come back to life after the humidity leaves and feel like doing everything at once!
Still I am taking time to look at things closely and take some pictures for you.  You already know that I love zinnias, and I'm especially smitten with how they look when they are fully in bloom. Tiny flowers within flowers...
So of course I snapped quite a few photos. Enjoy!!






I am linking this to I Heart Macro on Laura's beautiful blog. Head on over for inspiration, breathtaking photography and heart-stirring poetry!

I'm thinking of you all and hope you had a lovely weekend!!

These are so gorgeous Silke... I have been observing this same phenomenon this summer for the first time. (I guess I'm a slow learner)... the beauty of a second garden within a single flower blossom. Marvelous, and only something we see when we slow down enough to pay attention! Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)

Sweet pictures, I love them all. The last zinnia looks like it's wearing a golden wreath!

The last one is PERFECT! These are so beautiful. Zinnia were my grandmother's favourite flowers.

Dear Silke,
I ADORE zinnias! As a child, my mother would visit my grandmother and we would stop along the way to buy zinnias from a lady who had a sign beside her mailbox, "Old Maids For Sale". I was about 8 and those flowers were taller than I was!

Wunderschöne Bilder!!! Ich mag das sechste Bild ganz besonders gerne! Die weiße Vase passt ganz wunderbar zu den wunderhübschen Zinnien!!!

How beautiful and amazing. I never looked at zinnias that way before... now I will forever be connected to you as I look at future zinnias being reminded to look at the flowers within the flowers!
Hugs my sweet blogging sister,
