Today’s Simple Nature Sketch
Marigolds are such a vibrant, hardy flower. They bloom well into autumn, accentuating autumn’s colors. Some gardeners like to add them to their vegetable gardens to ward off pests.
This little one came from my dad’s green house. He had given me a couple of trays of them. I planted a little patch by my new water fountain. They contrast nicely with its sapphire blue color. Soon they will multiply, creating an even larger patch as summer moves on.
P.S. Things have been really busy lately as I finish up on my marathon gardening! I am planning on painting from my gardens this summer, so you will be seeing lots of flower photos, drawings and paintings! lol Hope you’re ready to join me in the gardens! Gotta love summer!!
