Summer Regrets

September 11, 2011


I regret that I never planted any zinnias in the vegetable garden this year. I purchased some of my favorite seeds, ‘State Fair,’ 'Envy,’ and 'Berry Basket’ but good intentions did not become zinnias to enjoy.

When at the nursery last week I bought a zinnia bound in a 4-inch pot, but surprisingly healthy looking. Yesterday, I transferred it to a clay pot and am hopeful for little buds emerging.  

There’s always next summer.
