My marigolds always exceed my expectations with their vibrant yellows and orange. I planted these flowers from seed about three or four years ago in a flower bed in my back yard. When they are a few inches tall, I transplant some of them to the community garden. I plant them along the outside of the garden bed in the holes in the cement blocks. Marigolds are supposed to help with unwanted insects. They have a strong fragrance and that is supposed to help repel the bugs. They a welcome sight to those of us who are longing for the blooms from annuals that are dying out after summer's end.

Welcome to my gardening blog. My father passed to me a love for gardening. I wanted to share this passion with my girls, so they would know the origin of their food. (not the local grocery store). So, I dedicated myself to giving them what my father gave me; and if I can inspire someone to garden, the reward is even greater.
