flowers planted

Today we had excellent weather, so I moved about half a yard of dirt into my third raised bed, and tilled the flower bed outside the living room window. Then the kids and I planted that bed. There’ll be Helianthus annuus “kid stuff” (dwarf sunflowers) in the center, Tithonia rotundifolia “Fiesta Del Sol” (Mexican sunflowers) in the back row, and Eschscholzia californica (California poppy) in the front row.

this bed is what got planted–Tithonia along the walls, sunflowers center, and poppies along the front

These are three I’ve never grown, so I’m eager to see the results, especially the Tithonia, which looked great in the catalog. I have six or so additional sunflower varieties planned, but the height of these suited the location very well. they’ll grow just up tot he bottom of the windows without blocking the view to the south (I hope).
