I prefer zinnias before they are at full bloom, like in this opening bud. I planted these zinnias from seed (I started them in little containers outside my kitchen door in late spring). I got the seeds for free at the Highland Park Street Fair.
Here they are in my garden, along with orange marigolds and white mums.
