Z is for Zinnias: Pagan Blog Project 2013

I took these pictures of Zinnias in late summer in my neighborhood. Our neighbors planted a row of them next to the sidewalk, and I loved walking past their bright colors.

I haven’t read about Zinnia in any magic books, but I think their magic is pretty clear–they are all about happiness and cheer.

Zinnias remind us that sometimes magic is very simple. Just give someone a bouquet of Zinnias and see how fast he or she smiles.

Native to an area stretching from the Southwestern United States to South America, they would be wonderful offerings or altar flowers for a deity with origins in that region. Or really, any altar where beauty and happiness is part of the agenda.

  1. I think there is a certain magic in perceiving color. I mean look at it! And the vibrancy is changed in a picture, but brilliant either way. still loving your pics!

  2. A lot can be gleaned about the magic of a plant just from hands-on experience, but I’ve often found it helpful to do some academic digging as well to learn more about a plant’s ‘personality’ as it were :) Like how you mentioned where the plant is native to ^_^
