Mystery Solved


Do you remember the little sprout of a plant 
that Alex brought home in a little Styrofoam cup?
We were all guessing what it was and what
color the blooms might be!  Well, the wait it over!

    2. The English Marigold looks very different, and it is a herb for treating conjunctivitis. Not a lot of people know that!
