ABC Wednesday - Z...

...is 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.

  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.

  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!

    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:
