Beautiful orange, especially against those dark green leaves. I like the composition as well.

Beautiful. I always think of Hans Christian Anderson and the inchworm poem when I see marigolds!

I love the richness of the orange of these guys.

When we were small, dad used to get these for Mother's Day and we'd plant them all over the place mom. A special flower. Your post stirs up some happy memories.

I love the vibrancy of orange set against the green leaves.
Glad you liked the cat-and-keyboard chaos we posted yesterday :)
