Marigold (Calendula)
Today we will look at one of October's birth flower, the marigold.

One meaning of the marigold is sorrow or sympathy. In Victorian times it was used to say, " My thoughts are with you." The common name comes from the term "Mary's Gold". They were considered the flowers of the Virgin Mary. The flower also was a sign of constancy in love and was used as a herb thrown at weddings and in love potions. In Welsh folklore if a marigold bloom didn't open before seven it was a sign that there would be thunder that day. Calendula was also the most sacred plant of ancient India It was used to decorate holy statues.
