This beautiful zinnia traveled as a
seed all the way from Italy. My
dear friend Monica sent the seeds
to me this Spring. We have had unusual
weather, rainy and cold until lately. But
these beauties prevailed until....
Yes the herd came through...
But "FEARLESS" (that would be me) chased
them out yelling as I went, "these are special
flowers all the way from Italy and my dear
friend Monica. Leave my garden now!"
My DH said he was sure they understood what
I was saying.LOL One went whipping
past me at a real fast clip
that accounts for the blur....
I was able to save all but one flower.
These big guys are so quiet that you hardly
hear them coming. They had their babies with them.
Probably on a 'training mission'
So I picked some veggies and hung out for awhile
to see if they came back. They didn't.
I think they are re-grouping for the next attack......
