homer's farm: ode to zinnias

what follows is a completely gratuitous pretty flower post.  zinnias are awesome.  they are a simple country flower that always brings a simple fresh loveliness to the world.  i think if i could only have one flower, i'd choose the zinnia.  they are never boring as they come in so many colors, sizes, and degrees of puffiness.  the bees love them.  i love them.  they go on the list of happiness makers.

  1. I'm with you on the zinnias. They make such pretty cut flowers too. The foliage on mine never look quite this healthy as they are prone to powdery mildew. I just put them in my cutting garden so they look good from a distance.
