Another Desktop Dazzler!

          



With summer winding down, I thought it would be nice to feature this marigold, in all it's beautiful detail as a "desktop dazzler".  I haven't been dazzled or posted a DD for a while, it seems. ;<)

 For many years, I was not a fan of marigolds; now I just love them.

I hope you enjoy this orange dazzler; great as a desktop background too!

Hopefully all the brilliant fall colors will be here soon. 

Some much-needed rain would be nice too! Still not a drop here but in the forecast.

this desktop dazzler is lovely. The colour is great for fall. I've always like the spicey fragrance of marigolds as well as the variety of colours.
Hoping you do get rain soon!

Hi Brenda, They do have an interesting fragrance don't they? It's finally cooling down a bit here in BC, hopefully more rain on the way, we need it.

Hi Teri, Oh, that's interesting. A beautiful barrier indeed!

Hi SandyC, Thank you friend.

Hi IMAC, Well Canada Post has amazed me this time. Those cards were mailed from here less than a week ago. Impressive all the way to the UK. Now if they could only offer the same service times nationally LOL. The mail is sooooo slow getting to our city it seems.

Happy Friday, G

Just dazzling! That is one of the few orange flowers that I like.

Selma said...

WOAH. How eye-catching is that? Amazing to think colours like that occur in nature just like that. Love it!

Geraldine said...

Hi Petr, Glad you liked it!

Hi Lorraine, I did good!!! LOL

Hi Sandy, I love all things orange. It just took me a while to appreciate the humble marigold.

Hi Sel, It is intense, I agree. Great color, so energizing I think.

Happy Weekend, G :<)

I remember as a kid our neighbour's yard was filled with marigolds, all types and colors. It was so nice. This is a beautiful marigold and great as a desktop background, I agree.
