Marigold


The other day I noticed this tiny marigold in our parking lot, blooming in the crack between the curb and the pavement. I'm always so impressed when I find garden flowers that strike out on their own! We also have snapdragons growing along the top of the wall near the front door to our building -- probably from seeds that fell from a windowbox, or were dropped by birds. No one tends them there, but they seem to flourish.

Volunteers like the little marigold seem incredibly bold!

How was the grouse?

I used to call snap dragons bunny mouths.

I just realized I missed the grouse report. Good to know that not everything turns out well for someone who is a seasoned chef. I still think it's better to try new things that to go with the tried and true recipes.

I love it when nature reminds us that it is still the most potent force on the planet...

It's so pretty! We had a volunteer snapdragon behind our hedge this year - no doubt from the PREVIOUS year when we tossed the "done" flowers behind there. It was so fun to see that unexpected spot of color.
