Designing with marigolds

 In continuation of my previous post, rediscovering marigolds, this post is all about designing with marigolds. If you are a regular reader of my blog, by now you know how much I love to arrange flowers around the house. I believe in the farm to table concept not only with my fruits and vegetables but also with flowers on my table. All the flowers I feature on my blog come from my garden. As I was mentioning in my previous post, the marigolds were underappreciated in my garden. Now that I have way too many marigolds in the garden, I brought them in to the house to make  arrangements. I am simply loving the autumn colors all around the house.

A riot of color all over the house.

Stay tuned for more design ideas using marigolds in up coming posts.
