Who would not love zinnias? They come in the most beautiful colors and they are easy to grow from seed and love hot weather!. If only there was enough sun at my house. :(  I was coming back from running errands this morning and noticed a sign outside Stoney's Market in Virginia Beach which said "fresh-cut zinnias". Now I had to think about that for a minute but decided there was no way that I was not making a u-turn to check it out. I ended up with this nice bunch. Seriously, who could resist those? 
I have a feeling that I might return to the market for their sunflowers. Also brilliant!


  1. fresh-cut nature morte.
    Very fine choice in the colours

  2. A native flower of North America and loved by butterflies and hummingbirds.
    Colorful perfection.

  3. Love the hot vibrant colors. Haven't heard of Stoney's Market. Will have to check it out.


    1. Hi Pam!
      I'm always surprised by the many fancy colors of zinnias when I see them. I love them! Stoney's is at Hilltop, actually close to the hospital on First Colonial. I like to stop there when I'm in the area. They have fruits and veggies and flowers especially. You would not believe the selection of pumpkins and gourds in the fall. The place is covered!

  4. You always surround yourself with bright colors, Anne! Beautiful!

  5. Hi Carol!
    You're so sweet! Nature is amazing, providing us with so much beauty. I know you have some pretty flowers where you are!

    Thanks for stopping by! Nice to hear from you.
