Ode to Zinnias (and a precious cat)

The zinnia is an old fashioned flower that is a symbol of summer to me. No garden is complete without these vivid, heat-tolerant blooms that are plentiful and easy to grow. Growing them is a source of deep satisfaction and I cut them, along with cosmos and marigolds, for small flower arrangements all season long. It is not unusual for me to have five or six vases-full at a time.
