Flower Break

I have spent the last couple of days more engaged with the world than I really like to be of late and may I just say WTF?? Of course I can. It's my blog and I can say what I want. And one of the things I want to say is this: People are crazy. I mean seriously bat-shit crazy. And since I don't have a lot of energy for foolishness (particularly of the manufactured kind) and it completely wears me out...I quit. At least for the rest of the day I just refuse to put up with crazy people.

Let's look at my beautiful zinnias instead, shall we? I grew them from seed (a first for me in the flower department) and they have been just lovely out there in the garden for months. They came up in a rainbow of colors - pink and purple and yellow and red and white and orange and cream and even green - that have helped to inspire the ongoing painting projects in the house and they show no sign of letting up. Zinnias may be my new favorite flower.

Flowers always take precedence over crazy people. And zinnias are particularly uncomplicated and sweet.

Debi - I love your zinnias. Such a wonderful splash of color. And I admire your ability to recognize the crazies & dis-engage.

Hope your arm is feeling better...

And coincidentally, another blog post about zinnias.

Your zinneas are gorgeous. I definitely want to try cosmos from seed next year; maybe zinneas should be on that list, too.

Debi said...

Y'all are sweet. And, Lisa, thanks for that link.

It's been a mostly relaxing 24 hours and I am considering extending my no-crazy-people ban through the end of the week. I may have to hide in my closet.

You've noticed that, too?
