Last hurrah

After the zinnias had just about enough of the summer heat, we cleared them out and planted more from seed about a month or so ago.   We have a nice set of a dozen or so plants that will hopefully get to flower before the first freeze.   I really enjoyed having fresh cut zinnias in the house all summer.   Maybe we’ll have a few to take us through the end of Autumn.

Zinnies

The rain has been kind to my gardens.  This is the patch of zinnias that Monte planted from seed in February/March.   They are clearly benefiting from all the time  Susanne spent during her visit in December  to weed, compost, till and prepare these flower beds.  They’re feeling the love.   Thanks Susanne… you’ll have to come back soon and see them in person.

We’ve already been cutting blooms to enjoy inside the house.   I love fresh flowers!
