The Marigold Project: End of Phase One

I will not burden you with yet another visual of my dirt-filled planter, but the latest update is that the teensy little green thing that may or may not have been a weed has disappeared.  I have definitely given Mr. Marigold plenty of time to show up, but he has apparently missed the bus; new arrangements must be made.

One day soon I'll go to the store and buy a few baby marigold plants, and I'll post some actual pretty photos of flowers.

I wonder if now is a bad time to plant marigolds in Florida?  The weather here is gorgeous, 80 degrees during the day and 65 at night.  I guess I'll give it a shot and see how Mr. Marigold Jr does.

Also, Greg and I took a few vacation days last week in celebration of our 7th wedding anniversary on October 1.  One day we spent at Islands of Adventure in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, so stay tuned for an upcoming blog entry with lots of gushing and lots of photos!


  1. Oooooh Harry Potter! Happy anniversary to you both and I can't wait to hear tales of the wizarding world. Nice choice!

  2. Thank you. :)

    WWoHP was absolutely amazing!

  3. Congrats on 7 yrs, Ellen! It's too bad about Mr Marigold. If any jrs do show up, be sure to cover them up if FL gets one of its rare freezes!

  4. Thanks, Deborah! Yeah, even here in FL we usually get a night or two where plants outside have to be covered up. Or brought inside!


Tell me what you think!
