My father’s zinnia seeds I saved and planted in February 2016 are growing!
This band of zinnia planting sisters came to my side last fall when my father passed away.
And just a few months later, when I was gathering the dried zinnia seeds from his zinnia garden,
I shared them with these wonderful women.
And when I could, I gave away packets of zinnia seeds, and I talked about zinnias whenever anyone would
listen, and I encouraged starting a zinnia garden.
It was all because of him.
And now for the update.
I have 3 raised beds and things have taken a great growth spurt.
And these are my friend Debbie’s from seed packets I gave her-
And these are Anna’s from Papa’s seeds,
And Mary Jo’s from Papa’s seeds,
And Fran’s from Papa’s seeds,
And Mary Kay’s from Papa’s seeds,
And my sweet cousin Susan’s beautiful zinnias she is growing this spring,
And finally, my friend JB’s zinnias, sprouting from last year’s seeds- just like Papa’s did year after year.
All women need a sisterhood and gardening is the best common ground for that.
I am so grateful for mine.
