In the Garden- The Zinnias




When we planted the vegetable garden I planted a long row of zinnias for cutting.  A few were grown from seed (the green ones) and the rest I got a great deal on at a local nursery.  You wouldn't believe how they have grown!  In fact, the whole garden has filled out and shot up in an unbelievable manner.





Last week, we had a storm come through that was crazy intense and was accompanied by very strong winds.  Those very winds broke off quite a number of zinnias at the base.  This wasn't even something I knew to be on the look out for!  I was so disappointed, but fortunately all was not lost and I expect that they will fill back in.
