October 4.22: Coping, but barely October 4, 2022 by Oddment 10 Comments Green is so yesterday, the marigold said, purple is trending (though some say it’s red). I’m the David that blooms an eyeful of sun; by Goliath of maple I’ll not be outdone! Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

I planted yellow marigolds this year, and they are still going! The landscape may be turning brown, but those little yellow faces are still smiling bright. Happy Tuesday, Maureen.

Aren’t they wonderful? They bloom their little heads off, and so brightly! Happy Tuesday to you too, Judy!

Love your whimsy today! So welcome on a cold-ish, dark, rainy day in my neck of the woods. How can you not love marigolds, especially the bright yellow ones? One of my favorite flowers!
Hope your Tuesday is full of sunshine and blue skies.

Thanks, Ginger! You have my sympathy on the cold-ish, dark, rainy day. I dread such days and I’ve reached the point where every hour of autumn sunshine feels more tentative than the last; we will soon be in that dark, gloomy part of autumn. The marigolds keep summer for a while, and I love them for it!

I always root for the little ones! Onward, sweet marigolds!

The perfect take on the battle for the best dressed item on the autumn runway.

The marigolds would take that challenge!

Those maroon leafs are stunning against the mariGOLD! They probably started out green and ‘turn’ due to temperature fluctuation. That rich maroon reminds me of chocolate…

Nice! If Mother Nature could find a way to turn marigold leaves to chocolate, I’d plant a whole lot of marigolds.
