Thanks again to Teri for planting so many zinnias in our flower garden this year. I had never realized how expressive they can be. As we approach the (second) end of my Lauritzen Gardens show, this is perhaps the best weekend to go, since admission is free on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (Labor Day).

We were all excited that one of our California poppy plants was about to blossom, worried constantly that they’d be eaten by deer every night, and then cosmos popped out instead. Here’s to beautiful impostors. Or to garden ignorance. Hell, here’s to the weekend!

I found this scene in the predawn glow a few morning ago on my way out to Avoca to deliver some prints–one of those peaceful scenes that I love to stumble upon before the rest of the world has awoken.
