I learned about Flower Friday last year from Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pics. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!
One of my all time favorite flowers to grow from seed is the zinnia. They are so simple to grow and bloom as quick as sixty days from sowing. This year I decided to have an extra flower bed of just zinnias alone and chose some unique colors including the queen red lime zinnia.
I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. We’ve grown some similar to this in the past, but these are just stunning to me. Butterflies also love these flowers! They’re so easy to cut and put together for beautiful summer bouquets.
These are annuals and must be planted every year. The seed is so easy to collect and you’ll have fresh seed to plant every spring. I’ll be sure to share photos of how this color turns out!
Thanks for checking out Flower Friday today!
Feel free to share your thoughts on this flower or let us know what you’re growing this year. Have a great weekend!
