For my fifth assignment (single flower arrangement) I chose zinnias as they are such a lovely and sturdy late summer flower. Hot pink petals were a fun change from all the earthy tones I have been using lately. The center was quite a challenge as it is a composite flower, and I had to use magnifying lens to observe the detail. The creamy tones on back side of the petals provided a nice contrast. The unopened buds provide a bit of a flower cycle. I received 9.6/10.
