It's been a little gloomy in My Florida Backyard this week, with record rainfalls and lots of overcast skies. Fortunately, the gardens have plenty of color to counteract the gray conditions... case in point: these hot pink zinnias.
We've been loving zinnias this year. Some we've started from seed, others (like these) we've bought as plants. They seem to bloom without concern for sun or rain, especially if we remember to get out and deadhead every once in awhile, and the butterflies like to stop by for a drink when they're in the neighborhood. They're such an easy annual, with such big payoff!
