I agree! That is a lovely bouquet! And a nice picture of that zinnia, too! What are those little blue flowers in there?

Rats! Someone offered me seeds for Black & Blue and now I don't remember who it was! Oh well, like I really need more seeds to plant! Hilarious!

They're pathetic little plants right until late summer early fall when they start to bloom.. that's when you realize why you planted them! Unfortunately for us (you & I), they're an annual. But they're SOOO gorgeous...

My entire garden looks kind of sad till around the middle of August! Might have to try some of those for cutting.

Woofie - Do roses!! Can't go wrong with roses! Season long blooms, smells wonderful.. only problem is that they like blood. Lots & lots of blood.

Thanks, Woofie. If my Black and Blues come back I will share some with you. Have not had luck with that in the past, though.

Roses are red.........
'Cause they're VAMPIRES!!!! Hilarious!

I have some blue and white salvia, but the flower spikes don't look anything like those black & blues! I brought mine in for the winter, but I'm not sure if I got to it in time. I did collect some seeds, and a few have sprouted. Smiling
