Zinnia Flowers, Cameron Park, El Dorado County

Zinnia’s are beautiful flowers that spring in the late summer early fall.   These were planted by a neighbor of my relatives, and they really made the driveway so lovely.   There were zinnias everywhere!  Zinnias, got their name from Johann Gottfried Zinn, who contributed greatly to the study of anatomy, and to provide the first comprehensive anatomy of the human eye.  Interestingly enough, he was a botanist also, and thus the flower was named after him.

Beautiful zinnia's will brightern any garden in northern California.

Daphne Bouquet.

I made a bouquet of Daphne recently and I love this flower so much.   I know I go on and on about it.  It’s a perfect winter flower.  It’s actually a big bush, and blooms quite a lot.

Daphne is beautiful and smells even better.

This morning I awoke to the wonderful smell of Daphne flowers next to my bed. These are very small tiny flowers usually on a large bush, and they are very fragrant. These flowers would make a wonderful perfume. An extra plus to have fragrant flowers in the winter too, of course this is California.
