Until last year I had no shortage of zinnias in the garden. Five minutes planting a couple packets of seeds would guarantee plenty of color from late June to October. Last year rabbits ate 3 sowings and this year I learned my lesson–they only managed to eat two sowings. Instead of planting the third packet in ground I planted them in trays until they grew large enough to transplant and most of these survived. They have been very slow to open but at last there are a few along with a handful of cosmos planted at the same time.

In A Vase On Monday – Dahlia Tapestry

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.

Today I’m sharing a not quite finished arrangement showcasing the first dahlia flowers of summer. Mostly short-stemmed, the flowers required a shallow container. I found a glass pedestal dish with a flat bowl that comfortably held a large floral pin and set about to assemble a tapestry. The last of the calla lilies and several small buddleja panicles filled in an area that would have held additional dahlias had there been more ready to pick.

We had a wonderful weekend shared with family, our first get-together after the dreary pandemic months.  Two of my sweet sisters were in town visiting for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and having just made the long trek moving from Los Angeles to the North Carolina mountain town of Asheville, my precious daughter and son-in-law came in for the day on Saturday! We are so grateful for this happy reunion.
