The little flowers on the tips of the stems in this month's crossed flower block look a little like tiny zinnias. In olden times, the zinnia was said to represent "thoughts of absent friends." Flora's Interpreter, an 1833 Victorian book of flowers and their meaning, contained this poem about zinnias: The Zinnia's solitary flower, which blooms in forests lone and deep, Are like the visions fair and bright, that faithful, absent hearts will keep. -- Anonymous While working on this month's block, think about friends you have not seen for a while. And sew away!
