I can't be sure, but I rather suspect that these may be the last bouquets of zinnias from the summer 2010 growing season. It was a tough season for plants. Even the zinnias, which did comparatively well, weren't as lush as I had hoped. I've already been thinking about my seed options for next year. But for now, while I still have a few zinnias to pick, I'll enjoy the flowers in my bouquet.
Each day with Donald Trump in power is a day we are losing what’s left of our better selves. I am embarrassed and ashamed of my nation and look for hope in resistance. I like to read (I just finished Ta-Nehesi Coates’ Between The World and Me), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… lobster bisque, eyebrow-shaping gel, NPR, tulips, Spring lists, flower prints, bunnies, paper crafts, Easter eggs, homemade waffles, family traditions, sunlight, flower seed packets, shoots of green in chilly Spring soil, pink cardigans, chirping birds, hair ties, Spring Break plans, sunlight, sleeping in, and time for a sweaty workout.
