(and sometimes the beast!)




These marigolds were enjoying the morning sun as I walked by yesterday. Not sure of the name but thinking they're related to the French Marigold or tagetes patula. As ever, I'm probably wrong...
Interestingly, I read that in the 12th century, Macer wrote "merely looking at the Marigold plant would improve the eyesight and lighten the mood." Couldn't agree more Macer!
