I’m not French, but I’m horrified by violence.

So I decided I would try to post photos of flowers for the next several days. Not just any flowers – flowers that are blooming despite being surrounded by death (more specifically, the flowers in my nearly dead garden following the irrigation scandal of 2016).

Like this little trooper:

Good To Grow, Liza's photos, zinnia blooming against the odds

The world needs more flowers. And fewer assholes.
