Flower Of The Month- October Marigold
Marigolds are part of the sunflower family. The Greek story goes that everything King Midas touched turned to gold. His daughter Marigold was so unhappy that her rose garden had lost their fragrance, because they had turned to gold. As Marigold wept over her garden, King Midas tried to console her with a hug, which turned Marigold to gold.
