I love zinnias. They are so cheerful.
They're one of my favorite flowers. You can never have too many.
I've never understood growing flowers instead of food - I am *all* function over form - but I may be coming around. Especially in my little neighborhood now, planting some nice flowers in front would be a community service.
i tried to do zinnias from seeds this year and they didn't take (i think the birds got the seeds).you inspire me to try harder next year!!xxalainaxx
I love you.
mine reseeded from last year. I have two that are nearly as tall as I am. but pink is all I'm getting, one red finally showed up and one scraggly orange. I pull off the spent flowers and toss them on the ground so now have a new wave of about 12" tall coming on. probably all pink as well.
That would make a good bumper sticker!
Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
