My Zinnias Are Making Friends

Zinnias and Floral Frogs

A wonderful thing has happened this spring.


My zinnias have made friends.


Zinnias and Cobalt Blue Vase 


How did this happen?



I started taking them with me when I went to special places to see special people.


*They stayed behind at a friend’s house after a ladies' get-together.


*They went with me to visit a dear teacher friend one afternoon to talk about her house .


*I gave a small arrangement to the mother of a very dear friend when I went to visit.

Her mother and my mother were friends.


Many of you know my friend.

It is Nancy of Nancy’s Notes


Isn’t she wonderful?

And so my zinnias were there when her mother reminisced about my mother. 

I will always treasure that afternoon.

May I make a humble suggestion?


Find a container; dig up a sunny corner in a flower bed.



Plant some zinnias.


It is so rewarding.

Laura,
My Mom used to plant Zinnia's and when I would visit she would always send me home with a big beautiful bouquet. Yes Zinnia's and people make a beautiful combination.
Thank your for visiting me and leaving a sweet comment behind. I have just become a follower and look forward to your future posts.
Tonight I am putting up a new post, stop by.

Vera
