If you take the time to pick through the old ones, our zinnias are still beautiful. I have wanted to till them up, but they are still producing some pretty flowers. I hate to till them whenever they still have any flowers at all on them. Can you tell I love zinnias? My daughter put this bouquet together for me. She isn't as interested in flowers as she use to be. I think it is because she has done the flower thing so many times. However, I still try to coax her to help me because I believe that she will once again flourish in this area. (At least I hope so)! If I back off and let her make her own arrangements the way she wants with the colors she wants, she is more likely to want to do it. Then I try so very hard not to fix it for her when she isn't looking. I knew a lady that let her 3 kids decorate the Christmas tree. After they went to bed, she rearranged EVERYTHING. My kids are more observant than hers because my kids notice when I fix anything that they have done!
grace and peace,
