I am participating in two challenges today: Cee’s Flower of the Day and Dutch Goes the Photo’s Pink (first time participating). I went with a friend to the Chicago Botanic Garden on Monday for their big eclipse event. While there, of course, I couldn’t resist taking more flower pictures! Different flowers were blooming this month than the last time I was there, in June.
The first picture is a zinnia in full flower, the second is a zinnia which is in the process of pollination, after losing many of its pink petals.
