'Mornin Glory!

A couple months back I did a post "How does your garden grow" featuring some Zinnias and Morning Glories that I had started from seed for the first time, so I wasn't quite sure what the outcome would be.  I have had pretty good luck planting annuals and perennials, but as a lot of you probably know it's all about


It's definitely a bit of trial and error and LOTS of patience or Impatients?

Anyway, I'm happy to announce that I did get some blooms on them and before the summer's over 


I planted them in a small planter on our deck and the bonus is the hummingbird's love them too!
that's my next challenge to get a picture of them ~  

hopefully they'll be in a future post if I'm lucky.

 brings a smile to my face ; )

 My very first "White Purity" Zinnia

 My first "Green Envy" Zinnia not in full bloom yet, but it's already 3 feet tall...
can't wait to see it in full bloom

Another "Green Envy" Zinnia not quite fully in bloom ~ I love the color of these!

 I don't consider myself to be a professional gardener by any means, so for those of you that are this may seem like a piece of cake, but I'm working on it and every little accomplishment is a reason to celebrate!

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Oh yes those flowers deserve to have you celebrate! Job well done, my first visit here and now I am a follower! Hugs, Diane

  2. OMG that White Zinnia is to die for I don't think I have ever seen one such a pure white, good work, nice green thumb~ Hugs, Diane
