Farragut Square Gets Marigolds

NPS planting marigoldsDespite all the rain of the past few days, the National Park Service has still been able to plant marigolds around the monument to David Farragut.

They were able to plant the northern bed on Tuesday, and the southern bed yesterday. In the spring, the beds are full of tulips.

I can’t say I’m fond of marigolds, but they’ll be nice enough. That said, I can’t help but wonder what the beds would look like if they were bordered in perrenial sedum with room for annuals in the middle.NPS at Farragut Square
