Have you seen these...

 Have you ever heard of these flowers before...yep...they're Marigolds...
But these are different from ordinary Marigolds...the leaves taste like black licorice...no kidding...they really do! So I had to have them...because if I ever get an urge for black licorice...I can just step outside and get that taste...now if they only made them taste like Cherry licorice I would be a very happy gal!!!
Until next time...enjoy the day!!!

They are much taller and leggy. I have never liked licorice but am glad you do:}

I've never seen such long tall marigolds, Linda! My Dad was a big fan of licorice -- he alwasy ahd a bg of "All SortS" by his reading chair.

Thanks for your kind thoughts and prayers for Colorado! I'm praying they get a good soaking rain soon.
