Zinnia Parade


Most of you know how much I LOVE zinnias - they bring such joy to the garden (and the gardener!).  Ever since I sowed those very first seeds several years ago (sent to me by the gorgeous Tammy over at Casa Mariposa), my garden has been graced with their presence. And this year is no exception.

The Heat, the Rain....and the Skeeters!


Well, hello again.  It’s been an eventful month in both a good way (the Denver fling was amazing!) and not so good way (I was knocked out with the flu for a good chunk of time).  So much for “flu season” (eye roll).  I have never felt so tired and achy before…makes me wonder if I’ve ever had the flu before or just really bad colds.

Echinacea "Cheyenne Spirit" (started from seed a couple of years ago) is doing amazing
...as are the weeds but let's ignore that bit, shall we 😄
