Zinnia–#AtoZChallenge

zinnia

It is with mixed feelings of relief and regret that I post the zinnia, the last flower of the month and of the A to Z Challenge.  Zinnias are part of the daisy/aster family and are very easy to grow and the flowers last a long time.  In flower language, they mean endurance or also thoughts or remembrance of friends.

Today is a cool, rainy day in Chicago.  And I’m worn out.  I had a ton of things I wanted to get done, but I’ve only managed to get a few finished.  I’ll get a couple more things done for school, too, before I call it a day.  I could use some zinnia energy today!

Anyhow, I’ll do a review post of A to Z, but I’ve really enjoyed it.  I’ve met new blogging friends and learned some things about flowers and learned a lot about using photoshop.

I am a writer, handworker, artist and teacher (a WHAT!), and a mom of two beautiful daughters who are amazingly 17 and 21. I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.

  1. Very pretty flower. 🙂

    I’m always both relieved and saddened by the end of April A-Z. You spend months preparing, struggle to stay caught up, and before you know it, it’s over! In fact, I’m still getting caught up from falling behind in April.

    With Love,
    Mandy

    • Thanks! I’m still getting caught up too. Between A to Z and the end of the school year quickly approaching (and my daughter graduating from college) I won’t be caught up for a while.
