Floral Friday: Flower in Focus

 photo f5_zps69a7f73f.jpg

Zinnia is one of my most favorite flowers in my backyard. It comes in a wide range of bright and stunning colors which can give any area a good pop of color. They are blooming beautifully right now under the hot summer sun, I only hope they will continue to thrive as the heat becomes more intense in July and August here in the state of Texas. I find Zinnia to be such unique and adorable. As you can see in the middle, it has this cute star shape pollen (I guess those are pollens).

Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month initiated by Trishie at Under Lock and Key blog. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers.

  1. Pretty flowers and in the most gorgeous colours - my Mother used to grow Zinnias.
    Thanks for sharing
    happy Independence day

  2. How pretty and vibrant! I love the star shaped pollen and thanks for sharing these photos and facts about the zinnia. Wishing you a great weekend!

  3. Hi Maysa,

    Your zinnias are very pretty and look very healthy, too! I noticed that the stems are clear of too much leafy foliage. Do you cut them back? I live in a very hot and dry Mediterranean climate and this week, we've been hit with horrible heatwaves and wind storms and the leaves on my zinnias are dry and chipped. I just cut off those burnt leaves and hope that they rejuvenate the flower, too!

    Happy weekend!


  4. Oh I LOVE "Zinnia" as well; Especially the the star shaped pollen♡♡♡ Such a BEAUTY(*^_^*)

    Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
