Summer at My Farmer’s Market

My all-time summer purchases are fruit for breakfast. Peaches—the sweetest, apricots, plums. Cherries, too but they were gone today.

But this summer I’ve been getting flowers and photographing them. Here are zinnias which I love as you can see. (These two bunches were $10 apiece! So, enjoy those you can plant.)

The colors are what I love the most, I guess.

Since photographing them, I’m noticing the lovely details of the flowers.

The centers vary so much just as the petal colors.

I looked for marigolds because I think I can make dye or paint after they are done.

This variety I thought so interesting.

A simple yellow one.

Another single red one.

Another single flower.

  1. These photographs of flowers, particularly the close ups are a delight! Such a richness and subtlety in their coloration. I particularly enjoyed seeing a spiral at the center of the yellow zinnia. I swear, the flowers are so prolific right now they don’t know what to do with themselves… everywhere and inspiration for weaving abounds!

  2. Ms Peggy, isn’t Mother Nature amazing! I am in continue awe of what she accomplishes seemingly so easy. But we know it’s taken years, eons to get where we’re at!

  3. I do enjoy all the lovely photos! Thanks so much for sharing them. The colors and composition inspire me. 😊

  4. Thanks Peggy. I love zinnias also. Last year they were in abundance in my yard but this year the heat has dwindled them….marigolds also.
