  1. Your photographs are beautiful! Zinnia is a favorite flower of mine, and I add it to my landscape every spring. I recently purchased several seed packets of different varieties to plant this season. It was the first flower I planted when I was a kid, and I have loved it ever since. Thank you for this post!
