For some reason mums have always brought marigolds to mind. This time of year especially, considering the abundance of burnt-golden flowers at the market and everywhere else. I had not known, for instance, that marigolds are an herb (an aromatic shrub, i.e.) having originated in South America. Both of the photos below feature African marigolds (tagetes erecta) which, interestingly, are a notable species of marigold due to their unpleasant aroma. More information can be found here.
