How are Zinnias like an old friend? They make you feel comfortable and happy just by showing up. They are also very thick-skinned and forgiving; standing by through months of drought, if you need them to. Colorful, strong, bright and charming!
My heart relaxes and I feel a little smile every time I see the Zinnias sharing my summer days, here at the RedBarn. Yes, in one sense, they are very ordinary, as anyone can grow them. Beauty, old friends, flowers in the garden, August summer days. . . .ordinary in one thought, extremely rare and precious in the next!
I’m going to think of them as I do my long-time friends; loyal, beautiful, enduring. . .and fun to play with too!
