Zany zinnias

You might say the weather has been somewhat disappointing for the start of the school holidays, but the flowers have been enjoying it and are all well-hydrated and growing well in the warm, wet weather.

This posy includes zinnia for the first time this year which are an almost comical flower that comes out in the late summer and keeps flowering till the frosts. It typically has bright coloured flowers like red, fushia and orange but we are also growing the more subtle varieties such as 'queen red lime' and 'envy'. This posy has scent from the apple mint, phlox and rosemary. I hope you enjoy it.
