    Each year I choose an annual to plant between my bean varieties. This year it's the "Will Rodgers" zinnia.
    The butterflies and bees love it.

    A lovely bright shade of red. With the added bonus of attracting bees and butterflies it's a winner!! :-D

    It's gorgeous. I never knew zinnias came in that color. Then again, I'm such a novice gardener I don't know much of anything. :) I've added it to my gardening notebook for next year!

    Got way behind on my planting this year. Will add that to my list. Want something that blooms longer.
