Zinnias after storm-Zinnia flower photos

Zinnias are very hardy flowers, I told you so, in another post.

The many weeks of heat wave is finally over and now we are having the other extreme:summer storm with ice pieces from cherry size to egg size.
Thanks God, I have all my windows intact but my flowers in the window boxes are history and probably, the crops too.

I went out a few hours earlier to see what's left of the flowers at the church yard, across the street. The place is one of my photo sources.

As you can see in the pictures Zinnia flowers are standing tall as always, a few holes in the leaves and some minor scratches on the petals, that's all.

It's true that these flowers are planted under trees, so they were partially protected.

Zinnias are the first flowers I remember from my childhood. I bought some seeds this year but didn't get them planted. I won't let that happen next year!

Zinnias are very common house hold flowers in Borneo and Singapore.

To replant, we just used matured flowers and rub out the seed on the same ground, they will grow seedlings.

Do you still use a badge for this meme?

Wow!! Fascinating flower!! Is it edible? The central core [very ably captured] reminds me of a raspberry-- Really nice shots.

Many thanks to all of you for the lovely comments.

Ann, I don't know what you mean by using the badge. Of course I use it, it's my meme.
