The zinnias in our garden are still blooming! All summer we've had magnificent cut flowers in a sunset of shades. I tuck them into jelly jars and tall, skinny repurposed capers jars. Sometimes I'll add a sprig of fresh herbs, or a few fern leaves; sometimes nothing. Just zinnias.
I really love to place these simple arrangements where I know the light will shine on them. I've learned the early morning sun brightens the edge of a half wall in our main room. And in the late afternoon, the last golden light of the day pours through my kitchen window.
