Marigold and Lobelia in a jar vase by 

Day 353

I love the colour contrast of these two flowers (I even grow them together in the same container), unfortunately the smell of the marigolds is enough to put you off food. maybe that’s how they supposedly keep bugs away from tomatoes?

Welcome to the world of Hege Nolan. I’m fascinated by the world and everything it contains. There is a focus on food and still lifes here, which sometime surprises me given my past history of portraits! (well, food doesn’t move or pull silly faces)

    This is so lovely Hege!!! I love using glass jars as vases!!!

  • thankyou Carol!
    I have a collection of jars that get used as either vases or salad dressing shakers. I think that as vases they are more charming!

    lovely! i especially like the texture. can almost smell that stinky marigold from here. great colour combo!

  • the orange and indigo really pop against each other, don’t they? it’s a shame that the marigolds smell so horrible, they aren’t cut flower material. oh well!

    looks like the patient is bearing up …finger crossed you can keep capturing quality like this Hege.

  • thankyou so much.
    the patient is not getting better, it’s giving me an error message every 4-5 shots. a bit annoying!
