Flowers are such amazing, beautiful, frustrating, soothing, high maintenance and incredibly wonderful creatures. 

Here are the first flowers from the garden.  The zinnias are small but mighty and beautiful!!

The first planting of zinnias has had a very slow start.  With cool weather in May and the first part of June being extremely dry and miserably hot, they have struggled.  But with two inches of rain the past couple of days and cooler more seasonable weather in the forecast, they look much better and the second and third plantings look incredible.   I can get a break for constant watering and can spent more time weeding!!!!!

And mixed in with the zinnias there are a few chocolate sunflowers!  I love flowers!!!!

And I love this sign.  Made by the incredible talented and good friend Deb from Rubbish to Rubies.  She does amazing work with tin.

The flowers are coming!!  The flower cart is being moved from the shed today.  I will keep everyone posted on when bouquets will be available.

Until next time,
