Flowers on a Skywatch Friday

The skies have finally turned blue here, and this Indian Blue Sage reflects the colour of the sky.
My Zinnias are flowering profusely now, the rains have benefitted them.

The huge trumpet of the Golden Chalice vine is a pale, cream colour when it opens, but turns a golden yellow the next day.

You can see more flowers at Tootsie Time.
