It’s so wet that….

….. new zinnias sprouted on top of the spent bloom in a friend’s garden! The tiny new plants can be seen in the center of the photo on the brown flower bloom. We’ve experienced an extremely wet fall. Mushrooms, mold, algae are sprouting everywhere but this is the first time I’ve seen zinnia seeds sprouting before dropping from the bloom. Mother Nature doesn’t plan for it to happen that way.
