Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!

This past spring we bought some flowers and planted them in front of our apartment, including marigolds. About that same time, Olivia brought home a marigold plant she had planted at school. Now, three months later, this is what they look like...

On looking at the leaves...you might want to pull it up and destroy...do not burn...I would hate to see you arrested for growing marijuana...

Just kidding...but leaves look a lot like...hard to remember since I was a substance abuse officer in the Army...
