I have some similar chairs - I'll know what to do with them if they wear out.

> marigolds?

I took a closer look at these yellow flowers during today's walk, and they seem to be lantana! I was really surprised, because I think of that plant as being a spreading shrub or ground cover, but I guess that you can grow them in containers.

That was new to me, too!

As it happens, I have a large pot that I'm planning to empty out soon. Maybe I'll consider a lantana.

I love lantana, but my yard is the size of a postage stamp. I used to have a beautiful purple one, but it got huge in no time at all. Since I'm a renter, I realized that I shouldn't keep it.

I'm so sorry, Will ...... may Serena rest in peace.

I still miss my own purple lantana shrub, and I'll definitely look into finding a variety that would do well in a large pot. I love lantana --- they smell so sweet, and they attract bees and butterflies.

If I do find one, I'll post pictures!
