Flowers on the Deck: Pansies & (super) Marigolds

Pansy flower, 5/1/2010.

Who needs the botanical garden, when we have these? Chris added flowers (these beautiful Pansies) to our garden this year. Good choice. Easy to take care of, and since picking up and planting the starters, they continue to look great.I planted a few Marigold seeds indoors along with all the other seeds I'm trying this year. The seeds came from my friend E and they've survived the indoor start. Apparently they make good container-partners with tomato plants (nutrient-wise), and bring the added bonus of fending off squirrels, who don't like their smell.
