Marigolds, my mother tells me are great at repelling insects, an organic gardener's best friend. They're also one of my favorite flowers because of their happy hue and laid-back nature. (They're one of the easiest flowers to grow, very durable.) Also, Marigold was one of the baby names I begged Hal to consider. I thought "Goldie" would be cute for short. Anyway, Fable planted Marigolds with my mother yesterday. Along with lettuce, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, beans and fresh herbs. I love these pictures of them together, my best girls.
Thank you for protecting our little garden, marigolds.
