I am completely in love with these flowers in my front yard for multiple reasons. First, my mom had them while we growing up so I have a soft spot for these gorgeous zinnias as they make me think of her. I tried to grow them in Lafayette, but the dirt there was so awful they never did well. I can't get them to stop growing here! And my other reason right now is all the "wildlife" it's brought for Owen and I to explore. Currently there are 3 grasshoppers that we can usually find along with a white fuzzy caterpillar. Add in some ladybugs and butterflies and you have a toddler insect heaven.
