I traveled down my memory lane right along with you, Arlene! I have such a love for all those same plants as well. Even now all these years later, my garden is never without zinnias and marigolds.
Same here on the memory lane. I can still remember mom saying to me over 45 years ago. It was the first house where we lived after we got married and she said you should plant some portulaca. I still think of her every year when I see it blooming. Such bright and happy colors. Marigolds are hubby's favorite and I love all the other flowers you mentioned as well. Great article Arlene - Thank You

So very true, Arlene. It is truly a wonderful sight to behold when the seeds we've been waiting (with abated breathe) on comes to life! The seeds I've sown in Jan. are starting to wake up...it is so exciting to see them grow bigger & bigger every day.
