Well, today I broadcasted a ton of marigold seed in the 150 foot long bed that I have going down a lane...dont reckon much of the seed will start, but hey, if it does, it will be a long border of golds there! Some of my seed harvested from last years plants looked a bit puny. time will tell. I have some more to throw in there.

The marigolds will line up with the orange daylilies I got going on in there. I plan to add multi colors of four oclocks again and what ever other annuals I can scronge up.

There are some austrailian willows in the bed so it will be partly sunny and shady. There are some daffs on the border too and pansys already trying to come up through the mulch.

Guess I will have to take a new pic of it. I was also hoping to tuck in some cannas between the trees.. right now picture it where the punkins are and replace those with some dafs... the dafs are not blooming though!

This was last fall at punkin time. the year before I had gorgeous yellow mums in that bed in the fall.

And sow it begns.. all I can hope for is a lot of color!

The seed I tossed in there are seeds from the marigolds that I had last year that did so well and some got to be 5 foot tall.. I dont think they will do 5foot in that bed, the soil is poorer than the pots I had them growing in last year.
