Y is for Yes! and Z is for Zinnia

A is  for Yes! at Nasami Farm.  Yes, is what I wanted to say to almost every plant set out at the  special opening of Nasami  Farm yesterday.

I am not the only one saying yes as members of the New England Wildflower Society got a special invitation to tour the Nasami Greenhouses and get a headstart on our shopping.

Shoppers at Nasami Farm

Nasami Farm will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from now until October. There is a wonderful selection of native perennials, ferns, shrubs and trees. I bought another elderberry, as well as a white aster, liatris, monarda fistulosa, and troillus laxa which doesn’t mind heavy wet soil.

And, although I have not really completed the A to Z Challenge properly I will end with Z is for Zinnia.

What is  there to say about Zinnias. Colorful, cheerful, welcoming to pollinators.  I even have a beautiful cousin (twice removed?) who will celebrate her first  birthday in July – a month for Zinnias.
