Raspberry Sorbet Zinnia

 

 

pink zinnia with textures

Last year I grew Zinnias that I purchased from Renee’s Seeds in California and I was thrilled with the size and colour of them.  This year I tried another colour called Raspberry Sorbet.  I am equally as pleased as last year and I wonder what colour I will choose next year.

For this photo I chose Kim Klassen’s texture called Annabelle and another from Joe Olive called Canvas Rose.

I am joining Kim Klassen for Texture Tuesday.   I hope that it is a good day for you.

What a pretty colour, and a pretty name for this zinnia.

These zinnias are so beautiful. I remember them as a child. I think they fell out of favor for a while because they seemed ordinary. I have, however, seen some sensational colors, and I plan to buy seeds next year. For now I'm content with the yellow, orange and red I bought and planted in a pot even if it is a bit late in the season.
I love the Annabelle texture and it's perfect for this photo. Nice editing.

Love the texture.. thank you for sharing.

Pretty. Never grown zinnias - but I bet they are a good filler. I know they perform really well throughout the season which would be terrific at this time of year when most things are finished in my garden.

Valerie, this is really beautiful.
I am quite sure I've not seen a color like this in a zinnia. It really does look like raspberry sorbet!
xo.

I'm a new visitor after finding your blog on a different gardening blog titled "A Gardener in Progress." So glad I stopped by. We recently moved to Salt Lake City where drought tolerant plants are a must so I look forward to getting more inspiration from you. My blog is http://WicklessinSeattle.blogspot.com

Hi Valerie, I like zinnias too, and yours is a lovely color. I enjoyed seeing your texturizing effect - looks great!

Hi Val, That's really lovely! And even lovelier since you grew it yourself.

Zinnias are so happy. I never really did much with them but Erin dropped off a few buckets full last week and I've been playing. :)
