Today's Flowers




Marigolds are fairly easy to grow and they come back every year. The bees like them too! There is no reason why one picture has a white frame except that I forgot I had framed it.

Greyscale Territory said...

What gorgeous pics of marigolds! Vibrant colour!

PERBS said...

You going back to small photos when you post more than one?

Marigolds are good for the other flowers too. When I was teaching and we planted a garden, we always planted Marigolds among the veggies to ward off "bad" bugs. Nice bee capture also!

PS I looked up your Passion Flower way back in July. It is a different color than mine but when I looked on Google, they said they come in various shades.

I like Marigolds very much. They have got strong and beautiful colours.
I always plant them together with carrots and other vegetables to keep noxious animals away.
Your photos are great Dot! :)

Carletta said...

Lovely photo essay.

I have always liked marigolds. I remember my Dad always planting them when I was young.

Marigolds are really beautiful. When I see one, I will surely ask for a stem so I can plant it in our garden.

My flower photo is now posted here. Have a great week ahead!

Beautiful colors. I love marigolds, they are so hardy.

That top photo really does it for me. Thanks for a lovely post. You are lucky that they reseed where you are. Not up here in Seattle!

piedmontperspective said...

Fantastic shots, Dot! I love marigolds, they're so bright and cheerful.

Rose said...

Wow! Even though I have always loved marigolds, I didn't realize how beautiful they really are till seeing them like this.

People with Cameras said...

I love the colours this time of year. Beautiful photo.

Norm said...

Deborah Wilson said...

Ooouuu! I like these pics - especially the 3rd one. And I like the new shade grey on your blog. The dark color makes the photos stand out better!

Beautiful Marigolds flowers :)

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Fantastic marigolds.

Sorry for not being visiting as often as I wished.
For the moment by I'll have to pay a weekly visit.
Sorry.

Malyss said...

In french, marigolds have a strange name; they are called "souci", which means something like "anxiety"!knew The english name is much better, speaking of the gold of this beautyful yellow

Reader Wil said...

Interesting what Perbs says that marigolds were planted among the veggies to ward off bad bugs. I know that garlic in some cases is planted among roses to ward off plant lice.
The photos are splendid.

Darla said...

Beatiful Marigolds.

Craver Vii said...

These margiolds have such thick, hearty petals with a velvety softness. Your photos bring that texture out rather nicely.

Shannon said...

A lot of people I know do not like marigolds because of their scent, but I love them, especially because they help keep critters out of the garden.

Neal said...

Dot, those are beautiful. However, I don't like their smell. :)

Mike said...

That last one is super!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

The orange marigolds are stunning in this light! Very nice photos.

starnitesky said...

Beautiful photos.I like marigolds but find they get eaten by slugs so I haven't grown them lately. Maybe I will try again next year.

KOSTAS said...

Marvellous post with beautiful photographs and enough chromatic details!

Gramma L said...

I just love flowers. I had some yellow marigolds planted in my front flower bed earlier this year. They have died out. Your flowers actually made me think of mums for the fall. Maybe I'll plant some this weekend.
Beautiful pictures as always.

Kelli said...

So pretty!

MumbaiiteAnu said...

Gorgeous pictures of marigolds. They are vastly used for worship in Indian temples and festivals.
Happy Ruby Tuesday.

I think I like the white frame look Mama.

Ann said...

Thank you Dot :-) Stunning marigolds beautiful, beautiful, looks like I could reach in my screen and pick one. Excellent

Becky and Gary said...

Beautiful Marigolds Dot. They are one of my favorites. Even though it has begun to get cooler up here they remain strong and will until frost. There are just so mnay different colors too.

'JoAnn's-D-Eyes'NL said...

Beutiful! In Argentina we call this flower Virreina or Copete.

Dick said...

I like Marigolds, the pictures are very bright especial the last one.

The Birdlady said...

Very lovely.

D said...

These are lovely. My grandparents used to plant marigolds in the garden between rows of vegetables. Apparently certain pests don't like the smell of marigolds.

Rambling Round said...

It is said that these bright beauties chase the bad bugs away from the vegetable garden too. Have you ever tried that?

Jenni said...

Great clarity in these shots. Beautiful

diXymiss said...

Gorgeous, vibrant marigolds ~ eXpertly captured! So bright and cheery (a welcome reprieve after all the "sad" shots I've viewed in today's photohunt). ;-)

The Texican said...

Dot, You have outdone yourself. I suppose you are out gathering wool with that wonderful camera of yours. See you when you get back. Pappy
