Zinnias stretch toward the sky in their brightly colored hues outside my garden gate. They remind me of a neighbor's kindness in sharing some when we first moved to our home. They remind me of God's abundance when we seemingly do nothing. They simply grow. And now we'll be cutting some to cheer up another neighbor who needs to smile today.
Zinnia is at the bottom of a long list about seed saving from Sow True Seed
. I like to bookmark it as I move from one season to the next. I'll follow the directions to save a few seeds, and I'll let the flowers seed themselves again in the same flower bed. May your summer be filled with flowers and good neighbors.
