Happy color

When I was a kid, I loved calendula flowers... .such a cheerful, gorgeous orange. In fact, one iteration of my room while I was growing up was based on the color of a calendula.  Here are two of my favorite flowers in my yard this year....

This is an Old Mexico calendula that I started from seed.  Love the color!!

And this is a gazania I bought as a plant from the Master Gardeners spring sale.  It closes up when the sun is not shining on it, so I usually only see it on weekends.  The sun is already gone from the flowers along the back walkway when I get home.  Isn't it GORGEOUS?!
