tiny zinnia with little red morning glory

It's crazy what moves you. I have buckets of huge zinnias and marigolds sitting on my back porch right now, but, coming home from Flower Camp today, it was not those flashy flowers but a couple of tiny ones I was protecting. In this little bottle are the one volunteer mini zinnia I had blooming at Flower Camp (in the midst of hundreds of giant ones) and a couple of stems of little red morning glory. The morning glories are all gorgeous right now, but this little red one particularly cheers me. I actually planted it at Flower Camp--an act most any knowledgeable gardener would consider a mistake--but even though it's invasive and will pull down a flower half its size, I  love looking at it.

You can't really see it, but I also dropped a little bit of asparagus foliage into this bottle. It seemed as exquisite--and diminutive--as the flowers.
