Zinnias seem to be one of the two flowers that survived in my garden this year. Those darn (cute) deer ate my entire vegetable garden right down to the ground, but seem to have left me my flowers. I am assuming deer don’t like zinnias or these pretties would be gone too. Zinnias are a favorite cut flower for me. I plant them every year from seed and they have never failed me. They germinate by directly sewing the seeds into the ground and give off a colorful show every year. They also last forever after being cut, it’s very possible to get 10 days from these beauties. Maybe I should stick to planting flowers instead of vegetables but we don’t much like eating flowers with our meal.
