Zinnia

 The colours of late summer.
 I wish I had planted some of these happy flowers in the spring. I'll have to remember next year.
This is a scheduled post while I'm away for a few days.

Wow, have not seen those for years, used to be big down under when I was a kid. My grandparents had oodles of them in their garden.
Have a nice break.

Enjoy your time away.

Zinnias have nice pastel colours I think, but we find them hard to grow. They are very prone to disease - Dave

Zinnia are long-lasting. It is "hyakunichiso" in Japanese meaning "one hundred days flower". Each and every color in the collage is lovely.
