Old Faithful, Pink Bottle, Ushering Out the Day

1. Every year I plant one side of the vegetable garden with Zinnias. Each spring I've been tempted to try something different and then by August I'm always glad I went with the zinnias. From two seed packets I get a riot of color, the butterflies love them and they are excellent for cutting. My favorites are the compact ones that feel like pom poms when you pat them.

2. Johnson's baby lotion is the only thing I have on hand to use. I am a little self conscious to be walking around baby-scented, but I love the smell of myself. : )
3. In the pantry I have a can of cream of coconut, pineapple and rum. Tonight we sip Pina Coladas on the porch, listening to the light rain and watching the evening grow dark.


  1. I am in agreement with all 3 posts...yes to zinnias, yes to baby lotion (love the scent too) and definitely a yes to pina coladas!

  2. I pass a home on my commute home in the afternoons that has a bank of zinnias - so beautiful and always full of butterflies and bees. I'm so glad you stuck with them - yours are lovely, too.
