In the Garden-Zinnias

and the soil and sky as canvas"

What a lovely spot to while away warm summer days. The zinnias add such a beautiful hit of color - such a pretty place to be a busy bee! Happy Weekend!

Oh how I love Zinnia's. They are always so pretty, bright and cheeful. I grow a few types myself. Aren't they just the perfect flower to have for little gardeners to pick. I know my girls always enjoy picking their own.

Robin: what varieties do you grow? I just planted the ubiquitous cut and come again...and have been disappointed to not have a single yellow bloom. Considering mixing my own seeds next year
