The Zinnias that I planted from seed a few weeks ago are beginning flower.
I love to watch the process from seed to bud to flower. This one is only days away from opening. We have had a lot of rain over the past couple of weeks and I think the extra water has done more harm than good.
Even though the flowers are blooming they are not as healthy as I’d hoped. Perhaps a little less water would have produced stronger plants.
Zinnias have an interesting arrangement of little flowers within a flower.
In the orchard this Brown Turkey Fig is going strong. It’s exceptionally healthy.
There are at least 20 figs growing on this little tree. In a few more week I’ll be eating some beautiful figs.
I may not get to enjoy them all since the tree seems to be favoured by some of the local garden residents.
