tithonia and zinnias

The last week temperatures have hovered mostly around 90 degrees, by far the warmest days we’ve seen all summer.
Even though I’m none too pleased with the change, tomatoes, zucchini, tithonia and zinnias obviously are thrilled.
I’m linking this post to the Seasonal Bouquet Project, where the house rules are: “All the ingredients in the bouquet must be sourced within 25 miles of your home, ideally including flowers you grew yourself.”

  1. That’s really gorgeous!!! I never thought to use tithonia as a cut flower.

    Beautifully done! The blue foliage really elevates this from a nice bouquet to something truly special!

    The violet zinnia makes the combination pop. Do I see a gomphrena tucked in there too?

    Thanks for the introduction to the Seasonal Bouquet Project.
