With deepening gloom

Add marigolds to the list of plants that I kill.

What did I do wrong? I planted them in the ground with a little touch of Miracle-Gro, I've given them a little drink of water every evening and yet the geraniums and the spiky grass stuff I planted next to them are going full steam ahead, while the marigolds have withered up, right there in front of my Mary shrine, which is embarrassing.

I am Rappaccini's daughter! Woe is me! Nathaniel Hawthorne, save me!

Right in front of the Mary shrine? That does not bode well! LOL!
