Our Beautiful World 102 ~ Tiny

This week at



The word is.....

TINY

I planted some Zinnia weeks ago....


it was awesome to see some TINY sprouts peeking through the soil....


some of them grow......


bigger and bigger by the day.....

and some of them did not.....

for the ones that not sprouting after 2 weeks or more, I dumped the soil back into my big pot of potting soil mix.

one day.....

I was surprised to see some TINY green in that big pot of potting soil mix...


wow, pretty amazing that these TINY little seeds are strong and determined to be alive.

Please hop over to


and join in our TINY fun!

Fabulous pics Kirsty - it's fascinating to watch the tiny seeds appear and grow - I remember fondly as a kid doing this, got lazy now and buy punnets of seedlings.

I just love zinnias!! They have got to be some of the happiest flowers on earth! So amazing to me the variety of color you get from one little seed pack. Your garden is going to be so beautiful! Hope you share more photos once they start blooming!

Hi Kirsty, yes so much fun to see them grow, Zinnias are so pretty flowers!

Sylvia said...

Glad your zinnias are growing, I love that flower, Kirsty and they are hard to get started here, I think maybe the birds eat the seed out of the ground.!

Maria said...

Oh, I love zinnias, too! I planted several this year and they look lovely! Good luck with your zinnias!:-)
