Tagetes (1)This burnt toffee tagetes is a welcome interloper, emerging from a packet of Naughty Marietta seed.  She was supposed to be a blonde but turned out to be a brunette.  More Liz than Marilyn.  I’m not complaining, in the low autumn sunshine she is a real beauty.  She was naughtier than we imagined.  I do love a rogue.
