Late Fall Gold

I tidied up the raised beds in the garden downstairs today. Much of the summer's growth was ready to be cut down and cut up for the compost pile but the pot marigolds (Calendula officinalis 'Resina') are still lovely, clearly relishing the moisture and cool temperatures, and the 'Tashkent' French marigolds (Tagetes patula 'Tashkent') are still holding on valiantly.

Now if only the weather could stay mild and sunny as it was today, instead of getting ever colder...
