The New Round Flowerbed

We have found ourselves overrun with zinnias and marigolds that have popped up from last year's seeds that dropped. The little seedlings have come up throughout the vegetable garden. It is a nice problem.

I have been digging up the ones that are on the walking paths and those growing much too densely and putting them in flats of eighteen. Probably close to a hundred have been transplanted at this time. I have taken some to school and given some away to family.

In an effort to have more at home, B dug out the lawn in the backyard and created a new round bed. 

It is about 7 feet in diameter.

We transplanted coreopsis into the middle, zinnias in a ring out from that and marigolds around the perimeter. That was a few weeks back and now the first blooms are beginning.

So far, so good.
