I love Zinnas. They must be the easiest flower on earth to grow. I planted these back in the spring. They were beautiful until about mid August when it gets so hot in Florida that fire seems cool. In August they bit the dust, shriveled up, brown, ugly, DEAD. But Zinnas, lovely flowers that they are, re-seed themselves! So here they are in October, perky and blooming! I came in from my run this morning (3 miles, high 5 for me) and looked out on the back patio and they were just waving to me...begging in their little flower voices to be cut and brought inside. I had to accomodate them, of course, so here they are in some of my precious pitchers (I have a little pitcher obsession...maybe more about that another time). Ahhhh, what a lovely way to start the day. I hope yours is happy too!
