The Marigold is queen of late summer. And for stockholmers a walk to Rosendals trädgård for a ”fika” or lunch also include bringing home some flowers. With a pair of scissors in your hand you’re welcome to enter the well kept garden and pick your favorites and create your own eco bouquet.
Marigold (sv. Ringblomma) is not only crispy and colourful. It smells terrific and is non-toxic; you may actually eat it…!
The Marigold comes in many variations and has inspired artists and designers during the centuries. How pretty as a botanical print!
And how beautiful as a textile pattern by William Morris (1875)! Here in a linen/cotton blend in the colour Indigo. Photo copyright William Morris.
