I have always loved zinnias.  They love the heat and sun and provide a vibrant color to the yard.  I was gifted a new whiskey barrel of plastic instead wood so it should last a long time. I wanted to get zinnias started again.  I had 3 packages of seeds that were who knows how old, so i just planted them all.  Here they are in all their glory.  The great thing is I can dead head the flowers and put the seed back in the barrel for re-seeding next year.   I hope to have a barrel of zinnias for many a year to come.
