There is something about the brilliant colors of August blooming zinnias that makes me both happy and sad.  The happy feeling comes from the fact that the zinnias are giving much-needed color to my garden….right before the mums and asters start to bloom.  The red, pink, orange and yellow colors of the zinnias make me smile at their bold and saucy display. However, a feeling of sadness persists under the surface, coming from the realization that summer, for me, is almost at an end and autumn is just around the corner.
