Flower for the Day Marigold 10-9-16

This little patch of marigolds is from some seeds I broadcast in early July.
Marigolds (Calendula) are in the daisy/aster family and handle the draught and the cold very well.
I have had better luck with plants than seeds but these are prospering.

God willing, she said,
Looking at the dwindling garden flowers
This winter we'll have blooms of marigold.

Her clayed hands some smudged on her face
They speak of her hard stolen recess
From the grinding chores of running a family
And still when the wind turns cold
Dream for beds of marigold!

God willing
Before her dream's warmth fades
The garden will be blooming with marigold beds.
