Marigold from 2016

This photograph goes way back to the summer of 2016. I cannot remember much about that summer but I remember taking this. It is one of my favourite photos. I think it’s because of the light and shadows. There are a few drops of early morning moisture to add to it, without in any way damaging the flower.
I looked back through my January photos and I thought a bit of colour is needed. This, of course, is a marigold, officially known as Calendula and was sown from seed. Time to grow it again as it is a wonderful plant to deter pests from vegetables.

Writing is good for my head. When head is good so is everything, including some fast biking and slow gardening.
