2015_Day 137: Mini-zinis get A-plus

Zinnias in the middle tier.

Zinnias in the middle tier.

While I absolutely adore the way a cosmos looks, I think I may have to lean more on zinnias here in Texas.

If the first batch of seeds I tried to grow are any indication, zinnias — specifically the flowers — hold up better. The mini-zinis in the middle tier of my flower bed are just glorious and the actual flowers seem to be less of a treat to the bugs than the cosmos. Yes, the cosmos are pretty for a few days, but some type of bug or bugs seem to think they’re a delicious feast. Can’t say that I blame them, I suppose, especially if their beauty is any indication of how tasty they are!

Fortunately the zinnias are really growing on me!
