Zinnias are lovely

In one of my first attempts to try growing flowers instead of exclusively food in the garden, the sunflowers and zinnias were the only seeds to sprout (3 other kinds didn't make it). The sunflowers were lovely but the zinnias are the star of the show right now. One thing I love is the way the blossoms look different when they are young and old, and it looks pretty in all stages making them last for months. The flat one with the most yellow is the youngest, then they get more full with time, ending with a large brown center, kinda like a coneflower.
