Must not be a statute of fragrance limitations Jim-Bob cuz I can smell that pup from here. Sure do miss the gentleman but.............:-(

Them Zs look kinda like dahlias.....nice !

Two of three of my favorite visitors (BF & HB) We get Swallowtails but not Monarchs. The 3rd of course are bees. We have thousands now with all the sedums and Rose of Sharons but our Japanese pagoda tree has so many that I swear it's going to lift off at any moment. Makes me think of you know who :-)

Jim - Your Mister Lincoln is gorgeous! Love the zinnias, such cheerful flowers and the butterfly and hummingbird too and that is such a beautiful scenic view of the picture taken on top of the small mountain.

Gosh those are gorgeous pics of Mr. Lincoln. Mine has just bombed this year. It's never been too good of a bloomer - but I'm going to follow the advice about cutting back hard after blooming!! Was that your advice?

I've never seen zinnias before. Those are lovely!! I wonder if they would overwinter in zone 3. Probably not - that's why I haven't seen them here in greenhouses.

Looks like you're having a wonderful summer. Thanks for sharing!

Not my advice Carol... Our Lincoln is a stingy bloomer no matter what I have tried...lol
Approx 22+ blooms all season is average here...
