These cheerful little flowers are almost all that are left still blooming in my garden, and they are thriving in the chilly weather. They seem rather insignificant during the summer months, but I really appreciate them now! I almost didn't want to pick any, but then I discovered this tiny vase on the shelf and decided it would be perfect to hold just a few of them. It is from Nicaragua and actually belongs to my sister, but she didn't mind my borrowing it when I gave the flowers to her. :)
