Linda M,
Looking for my photo of orange cosmos, couldn't find.  My back yard was full of them this year. I  remember I had some packs of seeds given to me at master garden convention and throwing them in the garden.  So I guess that's where they came from.  I've never had them before, but they were nice to fill in for the summer.
But this is what one side looks like w all the zinnia's, corn and tomatoes growing on top of the iris.
I trim my iris back so I can grow other things.  I know some don't believe in that, I'll see what happens next spring.  See if I have any bloom. Last year, I did that and I posted the bloom I had.  It didn't seem to hurt the blooms.  This year though I did divide, so I know I'll have less iris bloom in the spring.
This is the first time I've decided to grow corn though.
I doing it as an experiment.  There's been chat, that corn and iris don't mix, so thought I'd see.
The message is ready to be sent with the following file or link attachments:
