persian zinnias

arrangement of dahlias, orange cockscomb, persian zinnias, blackberries and grasses

i'm infatuated with summer flowers this year, more so than before.  and while i'm away from the garden this weekend, i've managed to fill my time with flowers from the river garden at the union square farmers market.

the garden is humming along.  wish i had some pictures to show you (i'm too embarrassed of how i looked in the most recent pictures that pete took -- it was early and i was tired and hell bent on picking and tossing japanese beetles into soapy water).  we're heading up there next weekend and fingers-crossed that a few dahlias will be in bloom.
