In a Vase on Monday: A Gift

This week for In a Vase on Monday I am sharing a lovely gift. We visited our friends Christina and Gary’s garden to view the zinnias and share a delicious meal (and bring home a batch of homegrown tomatoes!!!). As a departing gift, Christina gave us this beautiful vase of zinnias from her garden. What could be more appropriate for our weekly vase than these beautiful summer flowers?

Their zinnia bed is nothing short of spectacular; what a cutting garden.

Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are sharing from their gardens this week.

    I am a new convert to Zinnias and the more I see them the more I like them. As Cathy says your friends must have a house full of flowers all summer with a bed like that!
