Zinnias make a summer garden for me. So easy and colorful and wonderful to cut and bring inside, I can't imagine doing without them. Every spring I buy more seed packets because the colors look so interesting. I don't need to because they self-sow each year without my help. I really prefer the tall varieties as they are so much hardier. The dwarf ones always seem to get diseased. No matter what seed I plant I end up with lots of orange. It's a good color though-very vibrant.
The Zinnias were the inspiration for my little rug. The colors were fun to play with. I will say that the crochet edge took way too long to do so I probably won't repeat that again for awhile. At least until I forget that it is time consuming to accomplish.
