Thanks Stacey-lovely rose-The rain is over and my house is not in a flood plain. No landslides or anything like that. We did have torrential rains though-sometimes it was as much as 2-3" an hour. Not fun to be out in. We had 1/2 of our yearly rain in 6 days.
"I liked the Wowie Zowie type last year & this spring I was disappointed when I couldn't find those in the nursery as they grew better & brighter for me than some from the past. So growing from my own is the way to go."
"Joan, thanks so much for your kind words. I love taking pictures and when I see pretty scenes in the garden, I want to capture them so I can cheer myself up in the winter when everything is brown and covered in snow."
"Lorraine, how wonderful that you have a greenhouse. I would love to have one. You are right that zinnias are very easy to start from seed. I just wish I had the room inside (or a greenhouse!) to grow more things from seed. "
