Zinnias On Sunday


This is Sunday in my Veggie Garden. An 8 foot row of zinnia's grow along the border for cutting. The photo above was taken at sunrise. I love the soft light on such powerful bloom colors. Click for a larger view.
This is the Green Envy from Burpee Seed 2009.

I have had such good luck with zinnia's this year that I want to buy the ones with special names. I did buy some that Martha Stewart had for sale but I need to get some new colors and kinds. Yours looks really great. I like the gridded rows of flowers.

Hi Bren, What a colorful garden you must have out there! Zinnias are so beautiful and they're great cut flowers, too, aren't they! :-)

WOW...I just love Zinnias. Mine usually come back every year, but they didn't this year. Your pics are so pretty and clear.
Have a blessed one.

Just beautiful! I plan to plant zinnas again next year. Do you save the seed each year?

Bren said...

Great idea... save the seeds! Thanks for the idea. I do this with most of my sunflowers.
Thank you for the wonderful comments!
