Doing the local thing in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. I love to garden, cook, talk about life and times and ponder how lucky I am to live in this magical place.

Marigolds are simple to grow from seed and they always seem to be smiling. I guess they are considered a 'basic' flower but they are one of my favorites. Bright colors, low maintenance and so easy to grow and gather seeds from -- a no brainer in the garden. I like a mix of marigolds - bright oranges, variegated (like these), big, small and loving the lemon colored marigolds our neighbor has this year. Of course, I've already scored some seeds :-) viva la marigold!
