Cosmos and Gladiola

I am surprised and happy with the success of planting flowers from seed this year. I think one difference from the past is that I'd usually just gone with whatever old packets I had around, and they weren't very fertile. This year I planted a new packet of cosmos and some new gladiola bulbs and they all came up - spectacular and fun!

I'll still put any-old seed into the ground in odd places, because I like the semi-random results, but for spots that I want to be really sure I'll get something, I guess I've seen the proof that it's worth it to get fresh seed.
