Marigolds Before And After

Marigold Flower

Hi there.
How are you?

Here are some photo’s I’ve taken in the garden. They’re Pot marigolds (Calendula officinalis. Yes I had to look this up : )

The flowers dot themselves around the garden each year. They don’t require any planting or looking after. The kind of gardening I’m good at.

When the petals drop off they turn into pale green seed heads which ripen, darken and when they are dry and brown the seeds drop off. Then the cycle starts all over again.

You really have to admire nature some times when she can turn seed heads that looks so alien into something so beautiful.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time have fun x
