    Moonpi…. You know, you could be right! When you find something like this with no label they could have made it and used it for anything! (it has been handmade because it is ruff around the top edges!) :lol: :wink:

One day I was standing there looking at the full bush of green with a confused frustrated look on my face and the neighbor (a wonderful gardener) walked over and started to stare at the plant too. He said "what cha doin?" I said I was trying to figure out why my marigold has not budded or bloomed yet. He said, "I can tell you that" I said, "why?" He said, "Cause it is a ragweed. I have been wondering for weeks why you have been nurturing that weed". I could have hit him at that moment. I told him if he saw me doing anything stupid again I would appreciate if he would tell me. I just let the weeds grow now. I don't even try to garden.

    Love the little quilt rack too.

    Kwhite …I will you what happened to me with marigold seeds!!!!
    :shock: :shock: :shock: I looked and looked for the dwarf ones to go in my flowers boxes….finally found them, put them out …DH watered them….they grew (and grew and grew and grew….out of the flower box!).

    I fussed and fussed “you can not get anything any more. They lie to you! They were to be little ones –not big ones!!!!” :roll: :roll: :evil: :evil:

    DH looks at me (now this is after he was with me when I looked for three years for the small ones) “they are suppose to be little?” “YEP”
    “I thought they weren’t growing like they should so I watered with Miracle Grow!” :roll: :roll: :roll: :wink:


    Thanks!

    Zyxquilts…That is me…..a quilt rack. :lol: :lol:

    I am working on a mini quilt but I tried machine quilting it(never have done that before!) and made a mess with the bottom thread. :oops: :evil: :oops:
    Taking it all out and going to hand quilting it. Not good at hand but worse at machine! :roll:

    Basicfun…..DH made that comment too (don’t they think alike!!??!!) only the dowel doesn’t come out! We have a plunger that we set the toilet paper down the handle (and hope we never have to use it for plunging!) :lol:

    HAHA that is good. My DH has "weeded" all of the plants out of my garden and chopped the mini trees in half that he planted claiming he thought they were "pointed bushes"

    Then the DD when she was little asked me why Miracle grow was blue in the container and came out clear. I told her that was the miracle. It is a wonder she is normal with the way I messed with her.
