Cosmos Beauty
Love the sun on them in the morning
This is my newest Hollyhock.
It's actually frilly inside.  I'll have to take another photo to show you.
I love the dark dark red
This is Jude the Obscure - a magnificent thing of beauty.  We had a tiny bit of rain which was most welcome by all my plants.
This is Voodoo
I've been working on this with Confidore, as something has been eating it.
It's looking a lot better.
Nothing like some tender loving care.
. . . and YES, these are Zinnias.  I think they're great  I've really been enjoying them - such interesting and colourful flowers.  I raised these from tiny seeds.  A great sense of satisfaction.
 
Now for the first day of school - 3 children at 3 different schools this year.
We've started with a "bang"
Yr 12, Yr 9, Yr 6
And some summertime petunias, you just can't beat 'em!
Aren't these lovely with the little white petticoats.

Your garden is full of beauties Annie! Mine is drab and grey and cold - and doesn't look much better in the summer either. I really need to try to sort it out this year! Lucy xx

Lovely photos as usual.
I had Jude the Obscure for the first time this year....however mine are much more cream to pale lemon.
I also love the formation.

You can always find more that one beautiful flower in your garden Annie. I love your zinnias.

Great photo of the school goers. I hope it will be a good year for them.

Lovely photos all round. I hope the children all do well at school this year - you too, Annie.

I used to hate zinnias as they looked so stiff, but a whole bed of them can be beautiful as they have such bright colours.

Isn't 'Jude the Obscure' just beautiful, wonderful shape too.

WOW, I liked your garden and flowers.
Awesome blog Annie. I just stumbled upon your blog. What kind of Garden seeds you'r using? Organic seeds or GMO seeds.
