ABC Wednesday from A to Z

The last letter of the English alphabet, Z brings us to the close of this round of ABC Wednesday, the brainchild of Mrs Nesbitt. It is also a tough letter for amateur photos to use but I do have some miniature zinnias growing on my 'slab' garden. . . and I would be sadly remiss if I didn't include this photo in honor of my favorite part of a hockey game, Zamboni-time. . . .after all, I am noniZamboni.
“There are three things in life that people like to stare at: a flowing stream, a crackling fire and a Zamboni clearing the ice.”-- Charlie Brown

Gorgeous zinnias! And I always like to see the Zamboni: smooth skating ahead!

Quite the contrast: summer zinnias and winter (sort of) Zambonis.

Viva Hockey Night in Canada!

Yours are the first zinnias I've seen so far. I thought of them right away but don't have any in my garden, so went another direction. :D

There's a bit of difference in scale between miniature zinnias and that Zamboni! Lovely post.

Zinnias have always been one of favorites among the summer flowers. And Zamboni always makes me think of - guess what? - you, of course. That makes two favorites of mine!

Beautiful zinnias, first time I see one too, like Leslie. Here on the tropics we don't have Zambonis... :(
