    Entertainment in orange and the Impatiens aren't bad looking either. Excellent use of a corner that probably would never have received a second thought. Now it stands out.

    Thanks all.
    Yes Cayuga.... fun stuff here!
    And Jerry's comment "....Now it stands out."
    Don't know if he intended the pun or not... but either way... it made me giggle.

    Thanks Netty and Toni.

    Here's a couple more orange blooms. I guess I got so excited about the others I left these out. Poor flowers.

    Marigold -Crackerjack Orange (the seeds were from Donna S)

    I love those Marigolds,
    I think I am the only gardener in the world who can not successfully grow Marigolds. I have never tried them from seed, I just buy the little plants, stick them in the ground and watch them die. :eek:

    I love the combination of purple and orange, I have been thinking about concentrating on those two colors for my fall plant orders.

    Toni--I like purple and orange too. Or blue and chartreuse.

    Lucky you to have such lovely blooms in your garden. I also love the stand in the corner. I might copy that if I can find an unoccupied corner somewhere. :D

    Orange is a city in Texas. Not a color. I do like that corner planter pole. :-D

    Thanks everyone.
    Bliss... there's a great restaurant in Orange called VanChoate's. Everything from alligator to frog legs. YUM!
    And that corner stand was a "dumpster find". As soon as I saw it, I knew where it's home would be.
