Marigold. Weather is dull and overcast with thunder rumbling in the background. Never dull in my garden while these bright golden rays of sunshine bloom. Butterflies live them. #marigold

Marigold. These little pops of brightness have filled in a big gap along the front path by seeding themselves in a perfect spot. No care, no bother, just happy little self seeders. #tagetes #selfseed

@laketitlow Thank you Annette. They are full of bright sunshine. I love them. The flowers and petals add bright colour to salads too as the flowers are edible. 😎🐝

Wish mine would flower I've got the drafted white fly among my tomatoes at the moment @Annettenoosa

@jpea apparently nasturtium is another plant to deter white fly.

@jpea @alan1111 Also told mustard leaf deters them too. White fly destroyed my spinach, kale and silverbeet last season. Put me off growing it. Will try again mixing borage, basil, nasturtium, marigold and mustard with my crops and report back. 🤞🤞🙃

Tough little Marigolds seed themselves throughout the garden. They have planted themselves into a bright little border, surviving in the most severe conditions. Bright little garden buddies. #marigold
