ABC Wednesday - Z... for Zinnia
Yes, my favorite flower.
Well, among others...
Single blooms are nice
But I think I like doubles 
Better - more showy. 
Bugs munch zinnias,
Holes are eaten in petals,
But beauty shines through.

ABC Wednesday is brought to us by Mrs. Nesbitt.  
Hop on over to her neck of the blogger woods and join us! 




  1. This is one of my favorite flowers too!

  2. I love love love Zinnias. I used to grow them in my garden, when I used to have a garden, and they were so good to me! They never let me down with their display of colors.
    These are awesome photos.

  3. I love zinnias! And I have some nice ones in garden thanks to you...

  4. Nice photos, I like the wide variety of colors that zinnias display.

  5. Zinnias are always so colourful.
    Wonderful choice for ABC Wednesday.

    Near((( )))

  6. I have about two square feet of half-day sun and for the third year in a row I'm growing the puniest zinnias you ever saw. But I'm so fond of them I keep trying.
    I'm just a tad surprised that on 'Z' Wednesday, neither you nor MPM went with Zinfandel!

  7. Is there any flower that is NOT your favorite flower???? I do like colorful and varied if you have a lot of them mixed. Yours are very pretty. Great z post!

  8. Beautiful Flower - beautiful shot!
    Fantastic "Z".
    Cheers, Klaus

  9. Perfect post for Z. Lovely shots of a beautiful flower.

  10. They remind me of my mother, who loved the double ones, too. Beautiful!

  11. Gorgeous flowers! I love the ducks with the cool hairstyles in your previous post, too. :)

  12. Very nice - I loe zinnias too. We didn't have fancy flowers when I was a little girl - but we had zinnias! I loved them then, and I love them now.

  13. Annie, is every flower your favorite? Because they're mine, too.

  14. What a beautiful little flower, so full of colour!

  15. Well, I saw the zinnias last night, but how in the world did I miss those funny ducks?

  16. Annie,
    I hope your foot is okay! Hobbling around is no fun!

    Take care...

  17. Zinnias? You want zinnias? I got your zinnias right here:

    And here:

    There is a place just south of us that grows this absolutely huge field of zinnias.

    It is right next door to the field of marigolds:


Thank you for taking the time to leave a thought. It's appreciated! xoabb
