Kentlands Photowalk: Marigold IMG 5050

Kentlands Photowalk: Marigold IMG 5050

 

Kentlands, our home community within the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878, is a very walkable neighborhood and I enjoy photographing flowers and plants during my morning walks. Marigolds are popular for adding color to local gardens. Kentlands is one of the favorite communities for families relocated to the Metro Area of Washington, DC.

 

Subhash Sharma  This beautiful looking marigold was first discovered by the Portuguese in Central America in the 16th century. Marigolds are known as the "Herb of the Sun" and are symbolic of passion and creativity. The Welsh believed that if marigolds were not open early in the morning, then a storm was on the way. Marigolds have been used as love charms and incorporated into wedding garlands. Water made from marigolds was thought to induce psychic visions of fairies if rubbed on the eyelids. In some cultures, marigold flowers have been added to pillows to encourage prophetic or psychic dreams.

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.
