Oh For A Zillion Zinnias!

Oh for a zillion zinnias!

These brilliant bursts of color brighten the summer season with their beauty -and also with the beauty they bring!

As I stood outside with my camera, several butterflies stopped by to sip of their sweetness.

A hummingbird moth also hovered about, greedily slurping up nectar.

When I see these Starburst candy colored flowers, I can’t help but smile.  I’m pretty sure they give off the fragrance of happiness.

I really do wish I had a zillion zinnias!

  1. Beautiful! I love your title. Is it a play on the hymn “Oh for a thousand tongues to sing…”?

      I wasn’t thinking of the hymn when I wrote the title, but now it is stuck in my head! But hey, if I have to have something stuck in my head, at least it has good words. 😊

  2. They are magnets for these beautiful insects. Wonderful photos!

  7. Hi Kathy, I’m going ahead with the zinnia post and – I know this is greedy – if its ok with you (I promise I’ll especially feature your blog and recommend it) I would like to use two photos from this post, the first and the 2nd-to-last and re-use your title. (This is in addition to another zinnia photo you’ve already okayed). Really cheeky! ..so I understand if you say no, but perhaps you’ll say yes so I have to ask 😉 The post will also have a few single images from other bloggers but I’d put yours first. Hope you don’t mind me asking, Liz 🙂
