|A PICTURE OF MY LITTLE FRIEND TAKEN THROUGH THE STORM DOOR GLASS|
|HE IS VERY TINY, A LITTLE MORE THAN 2 SPRUCE NEEDLE LENGTHS|
Here are pictures of some of my zinnias. I can't get enough of them in summer. I take pictures to look at in winter. Did you notice the pretty lemon drop colored zinnia? It is the first I have seen in this color. The last perfectly peach zinnia I planned on harvesting seeds from became breakfast for a goldfinch, so I will show you what I am doing to get some seeds from this lemon drop zinnia.
Here it is.
It kind of looks like a Casper the Ghost Halloween costume for a zinnia, but it is a nylon mesh gift bag. Hopefully, it will foil the little finches. They are welcome to all of the pink and magenta zinnias they want, but they always prefer the unusually colored zinnias for their meals. The ground beneath the zinnia patch looks like a parade went by and threw colorful confetti everywhere. I guess it was a parade of sorts. A parade of finches.
This is a picture of a bumblebee. He is a different one than I wrote about before. His markings were slightly different. He had a hold on the petal and was bending it over.

Happy Summer to you all!
