Sometimes you just get some delightful surprises in your garden. This bright orange blossom is growing from a dahlia plant that somehow is growing in our container pot of Genovese basil. It is growing next to the container pot of yellow zinnias. Hopefully it will attract and provide food for visiting butterflies, maybe even monarchs!
And another yellow zinnia flower is going to bloom...
I took this photo last week when we had some unseasonable, but very welcome, showers.
