Z Is For Zinnia

I've been to the Toronto Zoo so many times, but do you think I have one photo?? Nope.
So we talk about my favorite flower.
Zinnia.

A flower that comes in many colors and shapes.
Often gets mistaken for a mum or daisy.

Oh, but a zinnia is a little fuller and larger.

To me, one of the most beautiful ever!

So what is your favorite flower??

  1. I like flowers, but I do not know many of their names. Zinnias are pretty. I will sometimes buy them in the fall, but I didn't this year. :( I would love to go to the zoo again. Knoxville has a nice one, but we haven't been in many years. Maybe next spring, we can squeeze in trip so I can take photos. Great 'Z' post. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I love zinnias, but didn't plant any this year because last year they took over my little garden.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
