This year, I did not have time to do much in the garden. We even razed the vegetable garden because the blackberries had taken over. But I had to have something colorful in the yard. So, we moved the trough to the backyard and I planted lots of zinnias.

Alice Benvie Gebhart will be coming to Roadhouse Arts in September for a class on landscapes in glass. I promised to have zinnias so the students would have something to use as a model. I hope they last until then.
