Autumn Zinnias

via Daily Prompt: Gratitude

So fellow travelers, today’s blog prompt from WordPress is Gratitude.

With a forecast for heavy winds, rain and plummeting temps I knew the flowers still lingering in my garden were better cut and brought inside to enjoy than left to the elements.



Gratitude today

Is gathering zinnias

So late in autumn


 It’s a rare treat to even have flowers so late in the season.

The zinnias greeted me cheerfully on my kitchen table this morning as wind and rain sent leaves scattering all through the yard. One last breath of summer to be grateful for.




Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.

  1. Wonderful that you have zinnias! My MIL’s marigolds are still going strong and there are still roses blooming in the neighbor’s yard. It has been a very strange autumn… and we had our first snow flurries yesterday late afternoon! They didn’t stick but it was definitely snow!!
