Marigolds as Insect Repellent

Today I learned from my locker room/gym buddie, Candi, who has been helping me with gardening tips, that Marigolds make a good insect repellent.  Just snap off one of the heads and rub it on your skin.  I tried it and it works.  You just have to apply often, but it’s better than applying poison, and it’s a good way to put those dead heads to use.

Easter Lily

My “Easter Lily” bloomed again!
All you professional gardeners must be dying to let me know that this is not an Easter Lily. In the locker room this morning (making this official locker room news),  I was very nicely told  that Easter Lilies are white.
OK ok. This is the lily that I got for Easter. So it is MY Easter Lily!
