zinnias and more zinnias

I'm excited... not just about my blooming zinnias but tonight is the night before my vacation... 10 whole days away from work.  I plan to spend a good portion here in the gardens.  And so far the weather forecast is looking bright and sunny, of course that can change quickly in these parts of Washington.
 I'm thinking I may try a picture a day for the upcoming 10 days... something I've done that day whilst away from my daytime desk job... it may just be a picture of a bee in a zinnia but it's my challenge for myself.  And I know you're all looking forward to the idea!
 But really, I do need to try something just a little different... like planting this spike-y petaled, fire cracker of a  zinnia.  It's high time to shake things up a bit.
 I'm loving all these bright pops of color among my vegetables... I plant tons of zinnias from seed each year and look forward to seeing their bright and cheery faces... in every size, color and shape!
And with so many zinnias planted in my garden, I'll have enough for cut flowers all summer long,

  4. Zinnias are my absolute FAVORITE! I plant them in my garden every year for cutting. They last the longest, and they are so pretty. It looks like I planted the same varieties as you this year. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh I do love zinnias! And apparently the bunnies love them too! ... I love the bunnies, but not when they eat my flowers!
