Color Palette: Summer Marigold

Color-Palette-Summer-Marigold

Marigolds are amazing flowers, and this one in particular caught my eye the other day ~ I just had to snap a picture.  I love the ruffles, the hot orange color, and the insane texture … it reminds me of a skirt to a fancy party dress!

These striking little flowers of immense color, incredible hardiness, and huge variety in size and shape are planted all over Southern California, and I dare say they are taken for granted by most who see them because we’ve all become so used to their presence and placement. I hope this color palette post can bring a little attention back to this tried and true California friend. Next time you pass a patch of blooming marigolds stop and take a deeper look at their lovliness!  You won’t regret it!
