Annual Flowers - Colorful, Joyful and So Rewarding
(Jan Johnsen - coleus, plectranthus,angelonia, and more)
I know all about annual flowers because after graduating college (landscape architecture focus) decades ago, I went to work in the display gardens at MOHONK MT. HOUSE in New Paltz, NY.
I was not very happy about the situation because back then, in Landscape architecture school, flowers were not popular. In fact, not even considered!
I thought flowers 'beneath' me because I had drunk the 'koolaid' that said landscape architects need not be concerned with such superfluous things as flowers.
As I said, this was decades ago when marigolds and junipers ruled the U.S. landscape world. (smile).

But, as it always happens, the very thing you think is not good is actually the best thing you could ever hope for! Life works that way....
