I posted a picture on Face Book of the zinnias blooming in our yard. I asked Marty to plant a few and the mass planting is amazing, such a patch of color. And they are attracting butterflies like you wouldn’t believe!
I am also amazed at the attention that particular FB post got. Over 100 “likes” and numerous comments. It makes me wonder. Is it their colorful simplicity? Or the fact that so many people have fond memories of zinnias being planted when they were young.
I LOVE that even a photo of the sweet orange, deep pink, yellow and salmon colored flowers on tall stems touch people’s spirits. They certainly have brightened my days for the past couple of months.
