the pot marigolds (calendula officinalis), are doing really well both on the plot and elsewhere with friends both here in the UK and as far away as New Zealand and the USA.
I’ve been taking lots of pictures to see just how many variations there are of the the basic orange, yellow and buff (or biscuit as I call it) colours. Hopefully I will put together a montage of them to show here later in the the year.
I rather like the the two-tone ones.
Later in the week the temperature looks like being over 30C (around 90F) at times. That’s way too hot for me so all I’ll be doing is pottering and watering for an hour early morning. Stay cool, and have a good week!
