Zinnia :) 

Love zinnias, they make me think of my Grandpa.   He used to grow them from seed each year, then harvest the seeds for the next year. :)

Azalea

Mine are JUST starting to get buds.   They normally bloom by Mother’s Day but with the cold “Spring” we’ve had the leaves didn’t even grow.  Now in the past few days of SUMMER heat, they are almost ready to burst!    Amazing (but not so good for allergies!  :tissue:).

Oh wow, that is SO interesting and so pretty, at first I thought it was a type of banana or pepper.   Now I am going ot go read more about it.  I like the name too.   Thanks for showing me, Jane.

Lilac

They are in bloom here now and at my sister’s would scent up her living room in the morning when the windows were open.

I like marigolds, too.   It’s funny, my Dad had very blond hair and my Mom always said the yellow ones reminded her of him.
