Planting Marigolds

Children love marigolds and marigolds love children and can put up with about any conditions except frost and total shade.

I got to go on a fieldtrip to an agriculture fair with little kids who were more excited about planting their own marigold to take home than they were to see the cute baby animals and the farm equipment. It was even more exciting than the free ice cream! We are raising some very excited gardeners these days in school!

This painting is titled "BIRD WHISPERS." Have you heard bluebirds whisper? They are ever so quiet because they don't want to wake up the cat. Actually the cat is Adriana's cat doll. And Adriana has planted her very own marigold plant.
