Elissa and I agree that zinnias are the happiest flowers
in the garden and that you can never have too many of them.
So, when seedlings from last year's flowers started coming up everywhere,
we pulled up the brave little plants and tucked them safely into beds,
far from the path of the lawnmower.
We can't be certain, of course, but we imagine that each of them
sighed a great sigh of relief and are most grateful for the rescue.
