photos of last years rather stunted zinnia crop - they do love lots of sunshine

I'd love to grow a huge crop of zinnias, for they are a flower very high up on my list of favourites.
And if I had a big crop of them I could have big bouquets of their quirky, casual & very colourful blossoms everywhere. I love them.

Here comes the weekend


  1. good morning! oh, me too! I've found a variety called Profusion that does well with me with just a little compost to egg them on... bushy and prolific and the most amazing colors... this has been a good year for them... tried some that were advertised to be between 3 and 4 feet tall... they're handsome, but only a couple blossoms at a time. Enjoying a break in the steamy weather here in upstate NY. All the best!

  2. i adore the little yellow blossoms. wonderful photos!

  3. I'm still trying various things in different positions all around the house...some make it, some don't.... seems to me it's a guessing game most of the time.... love the zinnias....

  4. These are absolutely beautiful....just like you! :)

  5. that's funny because they are like flower depictions of your own art. full of life and sany. :P
