Flower of the Day – Marigold

I’d forgotten all about planting these πŸ™‚

But they’ve done a great job of ‘weathering the storm’, so to speak and surviving our harsh summer.Β  March was particularly hot and dry and I feared I’d lose more plants than I did.

So having survived, now these wee Marigolds are splendid little pops of winter colour – and as close as I’ll ever get to growing Sunflowers.

This is my next entry for the Flower of the Day (FOTD) photo challenge hosted by Cee’s Photography.

  1. Marigolds always make me think of “Dia de los Muertos” Day of the Dead. It’s a celebration of life that honors one’s friends and family members who have passed away. Colorful altars are built that feature favorite foods, and drinks and personal mementos, like keys, cuff-links, hair pins and the like. Marigolds are usually included in the construction of these altars as it is believed that the spirits of the dead visit the living during the celebration and the Marigolds help the spirits find their altars with their bright colours and fragrant aroma. Dia de los Muertos takes place on November 1st and 2nd.
    You have some nice ones.

    1. If my Marigolds are still blooming come the Day of the Dead this year, may the spirits find the bed in my garden and not the one in my bedroom πŸ™‚
