I have blue mason jars that I fill with zinnas every week and take to a few to my friends,plus a bouquet for ourselves. Picking up the used jar and leaving a freshly filled one each time. With the temperature 103-106 the last few weeks and no rain but few drops for 14 weeks, it's been a challenge! I water the 100 foot long flower bed .every other night. The other day I picked a big pink one with three centers! I keep all the dead blooms for seed for next year so will see if they reproduce!
Got this cute little sand bucket with flowers at a shop in Augusta, Mo. in the spring. It's still alive!
This is the pink zinna with the three centers! I understand this is a rare occurence!
Hello, my name is Marlynne Joy Snare (pronounced Marilyn) and I am really excited to be jumping into this new world of "blogging". I call myself a "Folk Artist" and enjoy creating with fabric, paint, wood and all types of natural materials. It will be fun to share some of these inside and outside the house projects with you too!
