    I am looking forward to planting zinnia seeds – as soon as the first rain arrives. You have shown us a lovely perspective of one, Eliza.

    Reminds me of a ballerina’s tutu!

    …just waiting for a Bumble Bee to excitedly collect pollen.

  11. shoreacres says:

    A side view makes a lovely aside in any discussion of the flowers.

  12. Aren’t zinnias the best? A staple in my cutting garden. Humble, reliable but still elegant with the greenish undersides of the petals.

      Agreed, I can’t imagine summer without them (or garden fresh tomatoes 😉 ). It is interesting to note that the species name is ‘elegans’ … so you’re right, they’re very elegant.

  13. A refreshing viewpoint!

    Lovely view Eliza

  22. It’s Zinnia season! Nice, Eliza!

  23. naturebackin says:

    I also thought that it looks quite tutu-esque …

  24. Irene says:

    Love the side view. 😊

  25. Interesting angle, very nice!

  26. Jet Eliot says:

    We don’t often look at a flower from the side like this, I really liked it, Eliza. So many layers to a zinnia.

  27. Beautiful! Have a happy long weekend!

  28. Tina says:

    Great perspective; I enjoy shots of plants, flowers especially, from different angles and at differing phases of development. Nice post, Eliza!

    Love the side view, Eliza. I often also get taken by the backsides of flowers when photographing.
