Zinnias Growing in Outer Space!

Imagine flowers orbiting the Earth! These zinnias are part of the Veggie System, an experiment in growing plants in micro-gravity aboard the International Space Station.  

These cheerful bloomers began from seeds in "pillows" in November 2015.  
Curious, I looked up the symbolism of a zinnia:
Maintain childlike sense of humor; have courage.  "The beauty of the world is about to be rediscovered."

Enjoy your day with the Angels!

Love and joyful blessings,

Rae Karen
