Butterflies In The Jungle

Okay, this zinnia plant TREE is outta control!

Last week, I measured the tallest bloom, and it was 68 inches from the ground. I’m pretty sure this plant was a volunteer from last year, but it is definitely happy.

After posting the following picture on Facebook, friends asked what I’ve been feeding it.

Nothing at all….. I think I watered it once or twice this summer.

There are other zinnias (although not as tall) in the same flower bed. I love going out and standing among them and watching the butterflies.

And take pictures, of course.

Motor Man snapped this of me attempting to measure the height of the tallest bloom.

He has previously mentioned that the flowerbed looks like a jungle.

A jungle with butterflies? Yes, please.
