Zinnias



I BOUGHT A PLASTIC SIX-PACK of mixed Zinnias (Z. elegans) in May at one of our garden centers that only opens for six weeks in the spring. I did not have a place for them in my small garden, so I quickly toed them in one of last year’s clay pots that was hiding behind my deck full of potting soil. I fertilized them with Osmocote and watered them when they looked droopy.


Here it is late-July, sixty days has passed, and they are dazzling in their colors. Oranges, reds, and yellows in a symmetrical presentation like they knew what they were doing.


Think of all the work they have done to get to this point.


What a gift for me.


Thank you.
