Stepping Up

Oct 21, 2014 | nature & awe | 2 comments

Winter is waiting in the wings, and still these zinnias hang on.


They are prolific bloomers, their seeds spread hither and yon. It’s always a delightful surprise to see where they show up.


I love their determination, their spirit.


They never hold back.


Instead, they stretch their necks to the Autumn sun, joy-filled and glorious,

yellowthankful to be here on this Earth, and ready to step boldly into another new day.

The Daily Grace in your inbox? I say yes!

    So beautiful…soft and delicate. I’m always happy to have flowers that last through September and October.

    Love the bokeh on that camera too!

    This is beautiful. Thank you for showing me how to take inspiration from my zinnias, which continue, determined and spirited, all the way up north in Larchmont, NY! 😉

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
