Rain Drenched Chrysanthemum, Marigold, Echinacea and Zinnia Flowers

Happy October, happy floral Friday and welcome to "this week in my Maryland garden!" The golden chrysanthemums look nicer this week and seem to glisten in the rain and glow in the sun.

The French marigolds grown from seed seem to be doing the best of all the marigolds we planted this year. I especially love the bicolor ones.

The white zinnias seem to be wrapping up so I was glad to get one last fresh photo for you.

And I was pleasantly surprised to see a late blooming echinacea (aka purple coneflower). Most of the larger plants have already set seed. I like to leave the seeds up for the birds for winter feeding.

The yellow zinnias are still going strong and I hope to see more fresh flowers through frost.

Thank you for joining me on this week's mini Maryland garden tour.  May the all powerful God who created us and every beautiful flower bless you, comfort all those who grieve, heal all who are sick, and encourage all who need it.
