09.18.13 note to self

For some reason, I don’t take annuals seriously. I dismiss them with their ever-present cheerful blooms.

Too common? Too easy? It makes no sense.

Is a coneflower any more exotic than a marigold? Not at all. Next year, I will embrace these happy workhorses of the garden and enjoy the color and beauty they provide with such tireless consistency.

  1. I certainly agree!! They are so wonderful and we need to use that beauty. Love the marigold picture and marigolds in general and I didn’t plant one. Shame.
