well yes I agree, brightens the morning most definately. I love the spicy aroma from the crushed marigold leaves. I know not everyone thinks the same.

Carletta said...

I so agree with Carole. I love deadheading them and smelling that scent!
A cheery presence for sure Mickie!
I actually have a few yellow ones on my deck yet and with a few days of warm weather I may have them for a time longer.

There is nothing like the yellow of a marigold. Your macros are stunning in their detail. Mine are all a yucky brown and yellow mix and gone for the winter. genie
