No matter what combination, the Marigolds are a bright splash of colour on our deck, and they'll go on like this for months to come.
They've even become the flower of choice for the four little vases on our kitchen island. Yes, that's the breadmaker behind them; we haven't eaten store-bought bread for some months now.
Last night the power went off for 3 hours mysteriously. We later heard it was a fire. Now that we're so addicted to our ipads and Netflix, it really throws you when you're left bereft. We went out on the deck and just enjoyed the quiet evening, the sun shining across the golf course throwing every hollow into shade.
Luckily we're now all set up with the generator, so Mrs. F.G., with the help of a neighbour, was able to get it going, and with power restored I was able to get into bed. Both the ceiling lift and the mattress depend on hydro.
