Today I'd like to share two things with you, my sweet blogging friends. Since I am home-bound, it gives you an idea of "my little" life in this tiny corner of the world.
May I invite you into my modest craft room? It is barely 12x13 feet, and where I spend much of my time.
Recently Jacky surprised me with a craft room redo. It's nice to play in a fresh new place which is far more organized. (Many thanks to my Facebook friends who made great suggestions!)
Before and After photos are here.
While some new furniture was purchased, we recycled some furniture, too, trying to keep costs as inexpensively as possible.
Also today I'm sharing something called AFRICAN MARIGOLDS.
Ever heard of them? I had not.
Most of the photos were taken
with the camera held above my head.
Previously, I'd only seen Marigolds that were 6-8 inches tall.
Having quite a green thumb,
it is with shame I hang my head -
growing marigolds has always produced disastrous results for me.
I received some freebie seeds in the mail and scattered the seeds here and there in pots without even bothering to cover them up.
After all, Marigolds don't grow for me.
This marigold pack apparently contained 4 varieties of African Marigolds.
African Marigolds typically grow to 18-24 inches tall.
My friends will attest that for some reason,
these giants grew to 3-5 feet tall!
Their stalks are super thick, as big around as my fingers!
There is a 100% germination rate.
If only I had kept the seed envelope so I could purchase them next year.
(with pot, these are 6-7 feet tall)
Does anyone from HOT HUMID AREAS know of a great brand to purchase in the future?
These grew in EVERY POT I scattered them in.
Thanks for sharing my "little world".
