|Zinnias are like fireworks, very, very quiet fireworks...or fireworks are like zinnias.|
I have schoolkids who show up occasionally to mow (usually the day before a rainstorm/heatwave combo that sends my grass shooting right back skyward so fast you can see it grow, so it's terminally shaggy), and I did dig up a lot of new flower beds (and even planted most of the area I dug up). I even (uuuuugh) weeded...some...sort of...before I got really busy with putting together the magazine, in addition to a full schedule of wall work, so the crabgrass is filling in the bare spots in the flower beds quite nicely. Still, I have one good trick up my sleeve: Zinnias!
|This is about the only plant combination I seem to have mastered. The marigolds reseeded from last year, and the zins grow from seed, even when planted late in June. Neither is fussy about going thirsty. Easiest splash of happy ever!|
Got a question? Did google send you here, but you don't see what you're looking for? Sometimes I see the search question in my stats, and think "Oh, I could answer that, even though it's not on this blog!", but of course, I can't contact whoever was searching...unless you email me or leave a comment below. firstname.lastname@example.org
