In a Vase on Monday: Zinnias

Although I have nothing near the gorgeous flowers that Rambling in the Garden has, to post for In a Vase on Monday, I am happy to participate.

Apologies on the picture quality. These zinnias have been a blessing in the summer months. The butterflies and hummingbirds have loved them. I planted the seeds in early spring. They have been a joy since.

These are the very few blooms that you will see in the middle of a Texas summer.

I posted the same picture yesterday but have to show it off again. Do you know how hard it is to chase a butterfly around the yard with a cheap camera? It doesn’t feel sane.
