My zinnias are blooming. I like to grow zinnias because they remind me of my grandma Powell., she always had a row in her garden. I grow marigolds because they are easy to grow and do well in the hottest months of the summer. Touch-me-nots will reseed their selves and I like to have them around the yard.
I have some four O'clock that come back every year but never seem to increase.

The morning glory grows around my porch and reseed their selves every year. This is another of grandma's flowers, she tied hers up with string and I don't because I don't have a roof on my porch but they just grow around and around the deck.

I want to plant things that will reseed next year in my two 8 sided flower beds, but it was too late this year. Which would do the best under a big tree?

My father always planted zinnias in the garden, too!
