I have a little bit of happy in my front butterfly garden...my Calendula. This Summer, first the seeds didn't come up at all and then when they did the little plants were so feeble and just struggled. Now? Positively thriving.
I have two blossoms open, and one or two more buds getting ready to open. Who'd a thunk? It's a beautiful bit of fresh color in an otherwise brown time of year. Happy.
