|I couldn't decide which side of this vase should be the front but finally picked this one as I love the unusual color of the no-name zinnia with orangish-red petals touched with violet at the flower's center|
|Back view featuring coral-pink zinnias and my ubiquitous Grevilleas|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold', Coprosma 'Fireburst' and 'Plum Hussey', Correa pulchella 'Pink Eyre', Grevillea 'Superb', and pink and orangish-red Zinnia elegans|
With our remodel mostly done (we're still waiting on delivery of the hearthstone to finish the living room fireplace, as well as the city's final inspection), we're slowly moving back into the half of the house we'd vacated 5 months ago. We've been moving furniture around and we continue to debate the best location for our grandfather clock, which was booted out of its prior spot by requirements of the new HVAC system. Once the dust settles, I'll pull together photos of the new space.
|Foxgloves and zinnias seem an odd combination but I liked that the the dark pink zinnias picked up the burgundy spots inside the foxglove flowers|
|Clockwise from the top: Digitalis purpurea (aka foxglove), Gomphrena decumbens 'Itsy Bitsy', Leucadendron salignum 'Chief', and dark-pink Zinnia elegans (probably 'Benary's Giant Wine')|
The remaining orange zinnias were plunked into a third vase.
|I threw in a few stems of Breath of Heaven and Leucadendron to fill out the vase|
|Back view showing off the peachy flowers of Zinnia 'Queen Lime Orange' and/or 'Benary's Giary Salmon Rose' (as the season neared its end, I could no longer reliably tell one variety from the other)|
|Clockwise from the upper left: noID orange Zinnia elegans, berries of noID self-planted Cotoneaster, peachy Zinnia elegans, more Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold' (aka Breath of Heaven), and Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder'|
