  1. I have a soft spot for zinnias because I grew them as a kid in a space allotted to me in my parent’s garden and they are so hardy even I couldn’t kill them off. Plus I can identify them – a big plus!

  2. I am inspired to plant zinnias in my garden next year! Together with dahlia reminds me of childhood and my grandma’s garden. Thank you! 🙂

    1. Great. You are welcome. I recommend planting them by seed, sowed directly into nicely tilled soil. I bet that’s how your grandma did it. 🙂

      1. Yes, she did and I helped her do it. That’s how I plant most of my flowers too, except annuals which I buy.

    1. Thanks Amy. And a happy Thursday to you, as I get back to you. Yes, they are beautiful. I just love ’em. 🙂

    1. You are welcome and thank YOU Jet. The zinnias are awesome this year and I’m genuinely glad to make you smile. Have a great day. 🙂

    1. Always my pleasure to help someone smile. Thanks for sharing my blog world, Irene. ‘Tis the season for blooming and smiling around here! 🙂

    1. You bet it will. They are real troopers, those zinnias.. Super gorgeous and easy to grow. I sow the seeds directly into the soil. No starters, flats or anything like that. They respond extremely well to such treatment and bloom well for weeks, if not months. Have a great day! 🙂

    1. One last little zinnia…. awww. Poor little thing. Alas. It put out plenty of seeds, I hope. Have a wonderful winter day Julie. 🙂

    1. Nope. They sure wouldn’t. Our summer gardens would be ever so much less cheerful without the super bright zinnias, always willing to shine as other bloomers fade. Cheers. 🙂

  3. Zinnias bring back great childhood garden memories of gorgeous color, ladybugs and making mud pies, thank you for sharing. – Sharon

    1. You are welcome, Sharon. Thank you for reading. They are rather timeless, aren’t they? Have a great day. 🙂

    1. I thank you most sincerely. Perfection is a beautiful thing and the flower seems to be achieving it at least. 🙂

    1. Thanks. I will tell my lady that you like the bouquet. She made it. We have lots of flowers from which to make bouquets, as you can see. 🙂
