Mellow yellow: Marigold


The Marigold flower is a revered flower for the Hindus. My Hindu neighbour planted a whole row by her foot path.

I see in Singapore garlands made of Mango and Marigold. The garland is tied to the frame of the main door of the house. This garland is changed on every festive occasion -

One day, at the Walker Park Beach, I saw garlands at the beach. I had no one to tell me what the significance they were. Were they similar to flowers placed at the bridges, roadsides where some one had died? I don't know.

I didn't know that about marigolds! Almost everyone here plants them in their gardens because they are so pretty and easy to grow.

They're pretty but their smell is a bit stinky to me.

I think marigolds are pretty flowers and very suitable as ground covers. I like their scent which I can smell from the leaves as well as flowers.
