Everything’s Coming Up Zinnias!

2014JulyZinniasResize

These Zinnias were first planted over 15 years ago!  One tiny packet of Cut & Come Again Zinnia seeds were sown in the Cottage Garden.  For a couple of years I kept the flower heads to sow the following year, but after a couple of years they started planting themselves!  I’ve not sown any seeds in over 10 years and now they are everywhere!

Sunflowers are so expressive!  This one is clearly happy to be alive!  Bees love them and so do the birds.  Actually the birds plant the sunflower seeds by knocking them out of their feeders    🙂

These are my new rain barrels!  I am so excited to have them!  I had gutters installed on my office/lab building and as you can see they feed into the rain barrels.  With 3/4 inch of rain, all the barrels are filled!
