Zinnia

Zinnias are a new discovery for me. I must have seen them at some point in my longish life, but have never taken enough notice to really ‘see’ them or even find out their names. I think I tended to lump flowers into broad groups, without giving them the recognition that each family (and branch) deserves. As soon as I took the time to examine each beautiful plant and bloom, their qualities and differences blossomed to make them distinctive and special for me. I wonder if that’s why I can’t stop photographing them? I suppose it’s the same with our friends and acquaintances. It’s when we take the time to properly see and appreciate their beautiful individual qualities that they really shine for us. Thank you, all of you shining friends of mine! πŸ™‚ You can click or tap the image above to view in large in the gallery directly now, a new development on my posts.
