Another Surprise

marigolds

In early June, I shared a post with you about a surprise in our garden area. The cosmos plants have grown quite a bit but show no signs of blooming, yet.

Not long after the cosmos started growing, a few other plants with a somewhat different leaf showed up. I mentioned to Bob they looked like marigolds. He responded that the seed packet he picked up said cosmos. If we had marigolds growing, it meant someone made a mistake at the factory.

It appears someone made a mistake. We have our first marigold blossom plus quite a few buds just waiting to unfurl their petals.

At least life hasn’t offered us any bigger surprises than these.

  1. One of those “happy accidents” in life!

    1. Indeed, it is!

    Hello sweet Sherrey, long time no see. Sure this is another surprise for you. LOL Sorry I have not kept in touch. Many trials have kept me preoccupied. Daily the good Lord helps me deal with them. Hope all is well with you.

    1. Hi Charlene! Indeed it is long time no see. So good to see you here. You haven’t been the only one not in touch. I’ve had three plus years of chronic pain ending with a major spine surgery in March from which I’m recovering. The back pain is gone but I was left with a numb lower leg and ankle I’m struggling with through PT. God is good, and I know he’ll help me stay the course and get back to the way things were.

  3. And that’s a nice surprise too! I have always loved marigolds because they’re so hardy, plus when fall comes along, they’re still around and they fit right in to the fall colors!

    1. Yes, a nice surprise for the very reasons you give. The little flower that keeps on giving! Glad you dropped in.

  4. Marigolds are hardy and very disease resistant, at least in Florida! 🙂

    1. Marigolds are hardy and disease resistant here too. The only thing that brings them down are our infamous slugs!
