Zinnias have always made me smile.  They’re such upright and upstanding citzens; so strong and cheery and optimistic.  The blooms last for a long time in the garden, and when I cut them & bring them into the house, they continue to radiate that cheeriness for days on end.  Since they’re usually at their best around  late August, I often have a vase of them on the counter when I’m canning my pickles, and have done several still lifes over the years, feathuring that zany combo. Yep, I ‘ve decided that for my summer to be complete, zinnias are a must!
