Look at them! How can you not love them. I will be the first to admit that they are not fragrant at all.....but the colors are so vibrant and alive!! My mom loved Zinnias and had bouquets of them all over the house.
Every year, she planted a huge flowerbed of nothing but zinnias in front of the barn. I think we had zinnias in just about every color possible. The flowerbed got full sun all day long and was a perfect spot for them. The bright array of colors could be seen from the road and when you pulled in our driveway it actually made you smile. Don't believe flowers can do that? Well, they can.
Every time I see zinnias, I think of my mom. Those are certainly fond memories. I sure do wish I could plant them here, but I live in a heavily wooded area and they would never grow without a lot of sunlight.
So, I settle for buying bouquets of them when I go grocery shopping. They make you happy and put a smile on your face just to look at them. They are one of my favorites. And you have to admit......we all need something to make us smile when we visit the grocery store nowadays.
There.....I've done it. This is "Z". I hope you've enjoyed taking the trip through the alphabet with me. I've made some new friends and I extend my sincere thank-you to all who have visited and especially to those who have left comments. I hope you will continue to come back again and again. Take care and no matter what, "keep smilin'".
