Happy Tuesday to you! As you know our daughter & her family are away on vacation; we not only are watching their two dogs-Lily and Copper, but also watering their garden. Their second daughter plants a flower garden each year and this is the second year she's planted Zinnias. I love them! This is one of the shots when the first flowers started growing.

Last night we had friends over for dinner and I needed some fresh chives for baked potatoes and also wanted some fresh flowers. Since they are away, I cut some for a nice bouquet.
I'm not sure why I've never planted them before; I may have to plant some next year.  They make such a pretty arrangement.  The bed they are in is filled and she probably won't know I picked any until I tell her thanks, one of the benefits of taking care of their garden.  Thankfully, Carrie brought over lots of fresh zucchini and squash before they left. My other granddaughter who is helping with Copper each day put this arrangement together for me.
I hope you have a great day.  I've already walked 3 miles and when hubby gets home we will walk another 1.5-2 miles with all three dogs.
Until tomorrow~


  1. That is a beautiful bouquet. We bet your granddaughter will be thrilled she was able to give you such a nice display.

  2. The flowers are soo pretty! Just another benefit of living soo close to those daughters of yours! Happy week!

  3. I plant zinnias every year, they grow easily from seed. My favorite is Purple Prince, tho they are all pretty. How good you are watering their flowers and caring for the dogs.

  4. Those zinnias are beautiful! Maybe we need to plant some next year too!

    Your Pals,

  5. Well if that isn't a pretty bouquet! Your granddaughter did a fabulous job arranging them. :)
    Enjoy your second walk~~

  6. zinnias are such HAPPY flowers! it's too hot here to walk and I need to, desperately. although, I've jimmied a back muscle and I can hardly move without lots of noise, pain and grabbing onto whatever is to hand to help pull me along.

  7. Zinnias are such cheerful flowers! Mom's Italian grandmother planted them every single year in her garden. We have such fond memories of these colorful flowers.

  8. The flowers are lovely. Yum on the zucchini, I just bought some yesterday and plan of eating it for dinner tonight!

  9. Zinnias are one of my favorite flowers. They do make a pretty bouquet, don't they?
