Today I am grateful for zinnias in the house. I have to confess that we made some serious preparations for a storm that never came! That included taking the umbrella and hanging plants down and also picking a boat load of zinnias, since they might have been squashed anyway.
I can’t say I mind that the house is full of zinnias because they are very cheerful flowers and I like cheerful. I’m also glad that there will not be the serious storm surge damage along the east coast that was predicted.
But some sicko, highly dramatic part of me is embarrassingly disappointed that the storm fizzled out. . .zinnias or not!
