Zany Zinnia, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Walking by a friend's home yesterday I just happened to glance back over my shoulder to her side garden and there standing tall and sturdy were a row of vibrant, hot coloured zinnias! I love zinnias, but for some reason I keep forgetting to plant them. These exotic specimens had the morning sun radiating from their petals, creating colours within colours. Hot pink, electric orange, and neon lavender blooms, each topped off with a cupcake shaped center, covered in animated swirls, curls, spikes and dollops of vivd icing.
