Marigold in the Morning

Marigold

Because there were 18 of us sharing one unit with two bathrooms, I felt the need to wake up very early in the morning so I could enjoy my time in the bathroom. While waiting for our companions to finish fixing themselves before we go to the conference site, Andre, Jacque, and I went out to check if the nearest store is already open so we can sip a hot cup of coffee.

The store was still closed, but just right outside the village there was this street corner where some marigolds were planted. I often times just see orange or yellow marigold, so when I saw this, I knew I had to take a picture of it. Not sure if its the rain from last night or the very cold weather, but I just loved seeing water droplets in the flower. What a great good morning greeting!

Great shot..
Love your picture.
Morning is the best of all times in the garden. The sun is not yet hot.
Sweet vapors rise from the earth. Night dew clings to the soil
and makes plants glisten. Birds call to one another.
Bees are already at work.

A splendid photo, Cartier should imitate that, I bet he could not get such perfection in diamonds.
