I plant cutting flowers on both sides of the greenhouse each year. Zinnias are always a favorite.

Zinnias are definitely my favorite cut flower. So easy to grow and colorful and fantastic cut flower.
Just love the colors…like a box of crayons!
Those summer days seem like so long ago. I am craving them right now. Nothing says summer like zinnias!
I don’t remember what warm sun feels like!!!
Love those zinnias and miss them right now in our below zero weather!! Needed a picture to remind me that their is green after all this white-lol
Seems this Polar Vortex is getting to a lot of us!
there is green….lol
Soak up the vitamin D for the eyes!
You are making me miss summer even more now. Lovely zinnias.
🙂 Come out of the cold and visit the garden over here!
Right, be there when it’s warm. 🙂
By the way, it took 5 stores but finally found the magazine tonight. I’m going to curl up with it and a cup of hot tea in a little while. What a treat to hold a magazine again.
Hugs….hope you enjoyed it!
My daughter braved the super cold temps 2 nights in a row driving all over to find it!!!
I very much enjoyed your article. I had no idea you have only lived there for 5 years. You have done so much in such a short time. Your property always looked to me as if you had lived there for generations.
Yes, they do!
I cannot wait for flowers. Going to start more flowers indoors this year… Soon:)
I didn’t plant as many Zinnias last year…BIG MISTAKE!
Zinnias are my favorite as well. They are so versatile and vibrant!
Easy to grow!
I so love your zinnia pictures each time they appear! They have a special spot in my heart and don’t grow very well in this area of the earth.
Quick growing for our Zone 4, you can just direct sow them and still get flowers all Summer into Fall. I do start some in the greenhouse though to get flowers a.s.a.p.!
This picture is just what I needed on this freezing day…beautiful! Thanks for the reminder. 🙂
Stop by for rest from the cold!
🙂 Welcome to the garden!
oh, looks like a an excellent hide and seek spot too 😀 My favourite thing to bring inside was a bundle of sweet peas. I grew them on our dog kennel fence. I figure I should make use of it because Buddy sure never did. HA! It was almost the length of our driveway and they grew like crazy there.
