This White Marigold was from a big container we planted with a flaming red Mandevilla vine, some red Verbena, a couple of different Nemesia and some silver Licorice plant. Almost forgot there was a Cigar plant (Cuphea x purpurea) in there too, which we hadn’t used before.
The conglomeration grew well together. I am never sure how all the different plants will look midseason but it usually works out. Changing some of the elements is always a possibility but that isn’t usually necessary. The different plants usually find their own level and spot to shine.
White Marigold has been discussed here before, including the interesting story of its development.

Several (actually many) times over the season I tried to get a picture of the Cigar plant. It seem to resist it every time and no matter how I tried the depth of field wasn’t right. That flower is high on list for next year’s photos.
We are considering trying to get a new Mac laptop to replace the Titanium Powerbook . I want a wifi enable computer. The new ones seem to have better specs and a cheaper price. Just like any electronic purchase it will take hours of research and searching for the best price.
