Hi Kanak~
Another favorite blossom of mine :)
How beautiful the zinnia is in each stage of opening. I really liked being able to see the bloom progression in your photos. Thanks!

What a glorious color Kanak. Makes me happy just to see it!

Beautiful. I tend to stick with only single zinnias, the fancy ones without eyes do not attract butterflies as well as singles. We are planting California Giants Mix, Inca and whirligig zinnias this year.

Really worth it to be there to see the grand spectacle. Zinnias are just so wonderful. Great shots, Kanak.

Oh Tina, you're welcome:)

Linda, just go ahead and get it. you'll love it!

Susie, it does draw your attention, doesn't it?!

Karrita, spending quiet afternoons trying to get THAT butterfly got me this! So glad to read your comment...

Mildred, among the pinks this is the most vibrant.

Randy, I really do not know the cultivars but about the butterflies---I'll keep that in mind. I can imagine how lovely your zinnias will look in summer.

Trudi, thank you so much! Happy to read your comment.

Racquel, so glad to see you here. I hope all is well with your grandfather.

Carla, this isn't the French ones:) This is the local variety and cheap too. But I'm happy with them. The pink ones are the brightest. The rest were in pastels.

Sue and Helen,

Thank you. And I'm so glad you stopped by.
