Zany for Zinnias

My love for my garden has not faded one bit. In fact, last night after coming home from being at the lake all week, the first thing I wanted to do {besides check on my chickens} was check out how my garden was doing. It looks amazing. It is finally starting to really take off and grow exactly how I had pictured it in my mind..you meander thru the pathways I staked and find vegetables growing all around you and the cutting garden has come alive with the most beautiful colored flowers..it actually takes my breath away.

Because I don't have flower beds this year {temporary garden and all} I took to planting flowers by seed this year and decided to focus mainly on a flower I grew as a little girl with my dad, the zinnia. I haven't grown this flower since, but let me tell you, I'm kicking myself for it now. Zinnias are freaking gorgeous! I will make sure I have a huge bed of these beauties every year from now on, you can count on it! They have a soft, spicy scent to them and come in the most gorgeous of colors..I just can't stress it enough, you need to grow these..seriously.

I planted over a hundred seeds and they are producing daily. I have purple ones, mixed ones, giant ones, peppermint spotted ones...ugh, they are to die for! Okay..I've gone on enough..here are some photos for your Friday viewing pleasure...have a great weekend everyone!!

the beginnings of a new love affair..
