I'm knitting, but I'm in that stage where a picture of swaths of red stockinette won't interest anyone, myself included. Instead, let's talk flowers.
More specifically, let's talk these zinnias.
Queen Red Lime Zinnia (mine from here)
I bought a packet of these seeds after admiring their photos online. I don't particularly have good luck with seeds, so my expectations were low.
They didn't need to be.
There are a ton of blooms on each plant, they last a long time, and they're even interesting when they're dying.
I don't plant a lot of annuals, thinking that perennials are worth the investment in the long run. I think I'll be planting these again, quite possibly in more places than just two pots. I'm going to cut a bloom and take it to work with me (in this). Autumn is coming. I'm going to enjoy the flowers while I can.
