Respect the flower

marigold frosty-1

Will someone remind me next spring, to plant a big swath of marigolds. This year I’ve had a few growing amongst the herbs and over the last few weeks their zesty colour has been a  real tonic, call it greed, but next year I want more. This morning it was a chilly –2.7C and they are still hanging in there. Go marigolds go.

We’ve had a dusting of snow today, no drama.
