September - Zinnias and Dahlias

I've begun to stitch Chessie and Me's "Quaker Bee Sampler".  Much like "Free Bird", this stitch uses only three colors.  This time, though I think I'm up to the task of keeping them straight! 

I hadn't been down to see my sister's garden in a couple of weeks... 

September is the month in which the Dahlias shine!

My sister also started several kinds of annuals from seed including Marigolds and Zinnias.

The pollinators love her Dahlias.

I like the sturdy Zinnias.

The great thing about a the garden is that there is usually something for everyone to enjoy / admire / lust after!
