March Bloom

This morning I found this tiny little bloom in my planter - this is the planter Rich gave me last year in early May. A tiny bud formed in early December, so TINY....and last week another bud showed up. So now the first bud is beginning to bloom! This marigold grew from seed from a previous marigold in this planter.
It's been a blue month - Rich's birthday is March 17, St. Patrick's Day. He would've been 39. Usually I don't try to keep planters going throughout the winter, however since THIS one is from Rich, I want to keep it alive. What a glorious lift to see this little piece of sunshine.................
