Nice! Which zinnias are those? Zinnias are so easy and they sure bring the butterflies and other pollinators around. We always plant a strip of them along the fence at the side of the garden. I like the taller ones as it makes deadheading easier on my back. And they're usually half red ones and half yellow ones.

I grew the green envy zinnias, dark purple,Will Roger's,Red man cactus, Burpeeanea Giants,candystripe, a few others for the pollinators. I loved watching the butterflies and hummingbirds.
So easy to grow and added eye popping color.

Is the Orange King the third photo, with the butterfly?

And which is that velvety purple one in the second photo, do you know? Beautiful.

They are all lovely!

The zinnia is a dark purple zinnia, I purchased from Crosmans seeds. Will Rogers, zinnias is a true red color zinnia with the monarch butterfly. I will see if I took a pic of the orange king zinnia,

Zinnias are the best! Easy to sprout, fast growing, butterflies and even hummingbirds love them.

These are Will Rogers and Daffodil, what I use every year along the fence by the edge of the garden. Those colors seem to attract the most butterflies for me. The height is just right for me for deadheading but not so tall they eventually fall over.

Thank you very much for sharing these beautiful photos.
I remember as a child that there were many butterflies where he lived like the ones he has in the photos, unfortunately, for many years I have not seen any again.

Beautiful! Zinnias. I like the Will Roger zinnias, one of my favorite red zinnias.
