Enamored with Zinnias



My husband planted Zinnia seeds in the garden this year.

They are beautiful.  Please forgive my posting so many, but I just couldn't leave any out.

Lovely! I wouldn't have wanted to miss a one. I think I have to plant some next year.

I plant zinnias every year. They are beautiful in every stage. Yours have so many more petals than mine, or they look fluffier. You photographed them all well, Amy!

I love zinnias- these are beautiful photos. I think the 7th is my favourite- but hard to choose. You might like to join my Manarin Orange Monday too:)

Fantastic details in these beautiful flowers!

I love zinnias. I have them planted...actually they 'planted' themselves...in my veggie garden, too. They add beauty and bring in pollinators.
Great shots!

I love Zinnia's also but we didn't plant any this year. Yours are absolutely gorgeous and your photographs capture them beautifully.

Rita said...

I hadn't seen zinnia's for years until I went to the farmers market last week and purchased a bouquet. Now I see them everywhere.

Great colors and such cheerful shots.

Zinnias are stunning flowers aren't they, from bud to full bloom. You have captured them well.
