    Pretty! I have resisted picking Cleome all summer (those prickles and funny scentโ€ฆ.) but with very cool temperatures overnight I may have to rescue the last few. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  6. Beautiful combination – the strong and the soft. Lovely.

  12. Nice to see a bouquet!

  13. Alice says:

    Ever-plentiful Zinnias and gorgeous Cleomes. Do you save their seeds?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      The cleomes self-sow and pop up on their own every spring. I just thin them or transplant to where I want them. I usually buy zinnia seed, but this year I’m going to try saving my own seed to see what comes from the pollinator crosses.

  14. A winning combination!

    Love those cleome whiskers!

  16. Debbie says:

    I can’t make myself pick my zinnias! But this is one gorgeous combination. Will picking them lengthen their lifespan, or should I simply let them go to seed for the critters??

    Delightful array ๐Ÿฅฐ

  18. sandyjwhite says:

    They go great together!

    Cleome is a charmer with those zinnias. I don’t see people use cleome in a vase often but it is lovely.

  20. Kris P says:

    It’s a lovely – and very summery – composition, Eliza. I lost out on Cleome again this year despite sowing seeds. With the exception of Daucus carota, all the seeds I sowed outside my cutting garden failed to germinate, presumably due to our very dry conditions.

  21. Robin says:

    What a beautiful bouquet of late summer color and flowers. โ™ฅ

  22. A classic Eliza arrangement. Beautifully done, Eliza!

  23. Jane Lurie says:

    Such a pretty combination, Eliza. The Cleome gives it an airy feel.
