Back a few months ago, I subscribed to the new NFL magazine. Last week, I got a letter saying that the magazine was being discontinued, and the rest of my subscription was going to be refunded to me. Enclosed was a check for that refund.
Suddenly finding myself $30 richer, what did I do? I went and bought flowers.
You know, to replace all the poke salad I'd been raising in my garden.
I bought scaevola.
And still more zinnias
I've decided that I like zinnias very much. I could have a whole bed of just zinnias. Tall zinnias in the back. Medium sized zinnias in the middle. Short zinnias in the front. I may just do that, next year.
Well, despite the heat, I got everything safely tucked in to the flower beds.
The next step is to get some mulch down.
Oh, and I finally figured out what these things are. Once the blooms had opened, a quick internet search revealed that they are my Cosmos.
I'm not so sure I like them. I'll just have to wait and see.
The zinnias are definitely a keeper though.
