Tomatoes and Marigolds

This is a photo of one of the vegetable beds at the big house. Nothing special, just a picture I thought was pretty.

I was flipping through Pamela Harper's book "Color Echoes" this afternoon, and this combination of multiple types of tomatoes, marigolds, and sunflowers seems a great play of oranges and yellows. I like the look of flowers and vegetables planted together, and the fact that they're all edibles makes it that much better.


  1. Why, I plant marigolds at the edge of my tomato beds, too, though neither one mine are as large as those. Did harvest my first tomato the other day, though.
