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!!!

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