Zinnias


Someone at the farmer's market was selling zinnias. I thought they were so pretty. I'd love to have a small garden area of nothing but colorful zinnias.

What a spectacular butterfly picture! I just love it.

And what is the purple flower on your sidebar?

The zinnias are beautiful! Isn't a treat to see a butterfly in our gardens?

Nan, thank you. The purple flower on the sidebar is a clematis.

I love zinnia's. I could identify Swizzle because I had it last year. This year the chipmunks and beetles have done a number on mine. I just got my first bloom today.

Great picture of the Black Swallowtail. I haven't had any here. The Monarchs loved the zinnias last year.
