A gardening column in The Sewanee Mountain Messenger yesterday began,
"Summer has given way to fall. Many kudos to Marianne Tyndall, the Happy Gardener, for using one of the best gardening tricks around -- planting late blooming, floriferous annuals in the late spring/early summer to fill gaps in a perennial bed. The zinnia, cosmos, and sunflowers at the Lemon Fair and St. Andrew's-Sewanee have been spectacular. The great thing with this practice is once some annuals have been planted, cosmos and cleone in particular, they will reseed consistently."My thanks to the Happy Gardener who makes all us creatures equally happy.
