Zinnias Enjoying The Heat

If they get enough water, zinnias love a heat wave.

  2. I guess I'm not a Zinnia. The older I get the more I like the cool and not the hot. I'm hauling water almost daily now. The heat is extreme with no let up and no rain in the near future. I just hope that I can manage to keep the garden in survival mode until we get a good soaking rain. I was concerned that this would happen this year. Everything still looks pretty good but we have a lot of July and August left which are our hottest months.

    Have a great day enjoying your Zinnias.

  3. Pretty! I have only one blooming so far. Mine have the heat wave but probably not enough water.

  4. Your Zinnias look so lovely. I wish I had planted them all over the garden after this hot summer. Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. So pretty. Nothing says summer is here like zinnias (and sunflowers!)
    Hope you're staying cool. We're supposed to break our hot spell tomorrow. It's been horrible, but my corn has shot up to chest high and has started putting out tassles. Yay!!!!!!

  6. I'm glad there are some things that can still look beautiful in spite of the heat. Your zinnias are beautiful.

  7. It's always nice to find a lover of heat waves. .I wouldn't be on that list. .and I bet you aren't either :-) The zinnias are just gorgeous!! J's grandma planted a mixture of zinnia and bachelor buttons and some other flowers. .she has lots of time to care for hers. .and I have to say. .it was the most beautiful patch of flowers I have seen in a long time. .especially in light of the wind and heat!! I especially like your variety with the curled petals!! Cut one and put it on your bathroom sink to admire!!
