Days as a zinnia seedling...

This year I planted a bunch of seedlings under a grow light, with the hope that a few things would sprout in 7-10 days.  I didn't have to wait long.  The zinnias started growing in 12 hrs!  Here is the photographic journey of my zinnias in their first week of life.  I thought it was pretty fantastical!

  1. That is fantastical! Love the word 'fantastical' too!

  2. That's amazing. I never gave it much thought but I do plant them outside every year.
