ABC Wednesday - Z...

...is for Zinnia
Yes, my favorite flower.
Well, among others...
Single blooms are nice
But I think I like doubles 
Better - more showy. 
Bugs munch zinnias,
Holes are eaten in petals,
But beauty shines through.

ABC Wednesday is brought to us by Mrs. Nesbitt.  
Hop on over to her neck of the blogger woods and join us!

I love love love Zinnias. I used to grow them in my garden, when I used to have a garden, and they were so good to me! They never let me down with their display of colors.
These are awesome photos.

I have about two square feet of half-day sun and for the third year in a row I'm growing the puniest zinnias you ever saw. But I'm so fond of them I keep trying.
I'm just a tad surprised that on 'Z' Wednesday, neither you nor MPM went with Zinfandel!

Is there any flower that is NOT your favorite flower???? I do like zinnias....so colorful and varied if you have a lot of them mixed. Yours are very pretty. Great z post!

Very nice - I loe zinnias too. We didn't have fancy flowers when I was a little girl - but we had zinnias! I loved them then, and I love them now.

Annie, is every flower your favorite? Because they're mine, too.

Denise said...

What a beautiful little flower, so full of colour!

The Birdlady said...

Well, I saw the zinnias last night, but how in the world did I miss those funny ducks?

There is a place just south of us that grows this absolutely huge field of zinnias.

It is right next door to the field of marigolds:
