The Last of Summer

Mom brought these on Tuesday and said they would be the last of Summer.
I just love pink zinnias!
My latest "trick" is teaching Baby Cakes to "smell" flowers. Michael was surprised the other day when I showed him that David could smell (and not grab) the flowers.
I didn't quite catch the sniff.
This tiny garden may not look great, but it was a very pleasant surprise. When I went to bed this summer the plants were about 2 inches high. I gave up on them, knowing the soil was horrendous and the watering outside of my responsibility. How surprised I was to look out the window in September and find the flowers in bloom!

Baby Cakes is lucky I can't come over there right now and pinch those adorable cheeks!

Your flowers are lovely. I've never seen speckled roses before. I used to be an avid gardener. It's hard to lose plants because you can't care for them. :(

I'm glad you have so many pretties to brighten your days of confinement! I pray you are soon stronger and able to get about more. I am so happy that you are blessed to be surrounded with family and friends!
