new marigolds

Mary got me some new marigolds for my tree stump planter. There are two plants. The dark red flowers have a much stronger aroma to them than the other flowers. I dug out the old soil and replaced it with everglades dirt which is very dark and full of decaying organic matter. The plants should do real good in that soil.

This old tree stump makes an excellent planter. I don’t think that I have to worry about freezing weather any more. Mary made stir fried chicken and vegetables tonight and it was very good. She also made some biscuits also which were exceptional. We had a busy day with doctor’s appointments. We had an appointment for 1:15 and had to wait and wait. Wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t have to wait and were told upon arrival “Come right in, the doctor is ready for you.” Just like on Marcus Welby on television. Boy, what a fantasy that is. I know, too much television again.
Tomorrow is another day and we will see what adventures await us. Have a great day and plant some flowers except for those living in snow country. Don’t forget to change the clocks this week-end. Thanks for the reminder from “seaside” I will be sure to do mine and change the batteries in the smoke detectors as well. Be gentle. Lew

I see you have a nice start on the flowers. They look pretty and spring looking. Enjoy the weekend.
