Zinnia into Shadow by seeya

Currently unavailable for purchase

The last zinnias and salvia of the year seem to be imprinting their shadows on the house wall to create a memory for the cooler fall/winter months.

    P.S. your short biography made me laugh :) it is so to the point!
    it makes me wish i wrote these words :)

  • Awwww, how sweet! I think my brain was just reducing any thoughts down to the bare minimum! There is a fellow named Bob Larson on RB that I came across a few weeks ago-his landscape work is amazing. His short bio reads “I like sandwiches”…..LOL. Sandy

    Delightful comp & contrast with the vibrant color & shadows, Sandy!

  • Yes! I loved the vivid orange with the black shadow background. I went outside with the thought of pulling out the zinnias, I had thought they were finished for the year and found this pleasant surprise. Appreciate the fave, Laurie.

  • Thank you Mary. All my other zinnias are finished for the year, so I was surprised this one is still thriving! Sandy
