Growth


Zinnia Seedlings

Three days ago, I planted these zinnia seeds.  They grow so fast!  Some of them seemed to be duds, so I reseeded them yesterday.  We shall see if they take off or not.  But I'm pretty happy with the five that have sprouted.  If I can keep them alive, I should have some nice flowers in about 3 months.
This is unusual, because I'm the sister with the black thumb.  But they had the peat pots and lots of different seeds at the grocery store, and I finally gave in to temptation.

Good for you. I bet it will take less time to get flowers than you estimate.
I will get some zinnia seeds too. There are so many new colors these days, including lime green.
