Zinnias







This baby Goldfinch was out of the nest too early. A father was feeding it through the day.










I do like my Zinnias. They are one flower that I always have in a garden.

  1. Nothing more reliable and beautiful in the garden. And, they re-seed themselves. Mine get a powdery mildew on the foliage, but I don't spray them. So many colors and shapes. That is a gorgeous stand.

  2. Zinnias are my favorite. So many beautiful flowers in the world, how could I pick one. But zinnias are what I love the best.

    Those baby birds can be rambunctious.

  3. Butterflies and zinnias just go together, don't they? Beautiful shots of them. Love the little hummer, too. I hope the baby goldfinch survived its early departure from the nest.

  6. Nice colorful pictures. I liked the hummingbird. My mother loved zinnias too. I saw a nice plot of them a couple of days ago.

  7. This takes me back to when my grandma always had flower gardens when I was a kid. I always liked helping her plant them.

  13. Oh my gosh, Steve. You've outdone yourself this time. These photos take my breath away. Zinnias have a special place in my heart. They were my grandmother's favorites. I know they're annuals but do yours just reseed themselves or do you replant each year.
