Blooming in My Garden

The green marigold continues to unfurl its petals. I hope that it has a chance to fully open before a killing frost hits.

Calendula officinalis

I’m continually surprised at how many insects are out and about in my gardens.

My hardy mum continues to delight.

Even when the flowers have begun to fade, the delicate pink of the dying petals enhances the bloom.
