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.
I am determined to fight for good in 2018. First up: It’s time for Donald Trump to go. I like to read (I just finished Julie Otsuka’s When the Emperor was Divine), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… my big stack of books-to-be-read, garden catalogs, planning history projects for 7th graders, hand-written notes, fresh calendars, soft winter scarves, polka dots, glimmers of hope, laughter, playing card games, morning sunlight, fleece gloves, Winter walks, magnolia trees, ivy, amaryllis bulbs, cozy throw blankets, HGTV, and the deep sleep I get after a good workout.
