Grasshoppers and Zinnias

I haven't written a blog post since February! But, here I am. 

I was in my flower garden the other day and was startled by this giant grasshopper. I ran in the house to get my camera before he leapt away.

Isn't he cute? I feel we made a connection. I know he was looking at me.

 I have a bumper crop of zinnias this year. I love zinnias and plant them every year.

When I was 22, I was living in an apartment that had a little ground floor patio. I remember digging up the hard clay and planting zinnia seeds and being so thrilled when they came up and bloomed.

And all these years later, I'm still a little thrilled about zinnias!
