Day # 315 - The Smell of Marigolds

The smell of Marigolds brought back memories of Mother. I don't remember a single summer Mom did not plant Marigolds,unless it was the summer she passed away due to cancer.

Tonight there was hardly a person round and so I biked through Yoder's parking lot and stopped to photograph these Marigolds, that was when I inhaled that long ago smell and the memories followed.


  1. Nothing brings back memories more than the smell of something. My mom always had marigolds, too, so this hit a soft spot in my heart. Great picture and great thoughts ~

  2. I plant marigolds every year,what I like about them they stay good until fall.Thse marigolds are beautiful.
