Very lovely, Candee. Are your zinnias all gone? I should have some mums blooming in a month or so.

I hardly had any zinnias this year. Something got all the seed and I seeded them 3x. I finally did some in pots but all that was left were the giant whites so not much color for arrangements this year. Thank goodness the dahlias are doing so well.
I don't have any mums, never had a good thumb for them as I managed to kill them all.

Guess the fertilizer is my problem with them cause I sure can't keep them thriving. They will winter in our area as I see them all over the place, just not here!!!

hi..
this is interesting to see your flower blooming because it is just the same feeling as our son become more older.
