Morning Wishetwurra Flowers

A quick stroll through the Wishetwurra Farm garden this morning yielded flower photos.

The scarlet runner bean has been pokey and slow all summer. Now it’s finally taken hold and is growing up the twelve-foot-high pole we put in for it.

I lingered at the zinnia patch, which is thriving.

Some blossoms so enthusiastic that petals are coming up in their very centers.

Here are pink fireworks from a cactus-flowered variety.

To close, we’ll give a nod to a flower that we grow every year.

The “mexican sunflower”, or Tithonia.

  1. Tithonia Torch is a flower I grow every year, too. I love it’s velvety stem and strong, sunset-shaded, opaque petals of simplicity. While it doesn’t last long as a cut flower, it sure makes a statement, especially when paired with the mid-blue hues of delphinium, or a handful of zinnias, daliahs, smaller sunflowers, okay: anything or nothing.
