Artist's Description

Portrait of a variegated marigold which I am growing on my balcony. Unlike the other plants which so far seem to produce strong single-colour orange flowers, this one produces a softer yellow and white flower.

I took shots of this flower in a vase with a wooden panel as a background.

Title inspired by Tony Christie’s hit Is This the Way To Amarillo
“When the day is dawnin’
On a Texas Sunday mornin’
How I long to be there
With Marie who’s waitin’ for me there
Ev’ry lonely city where I hang my hat
Ain’t as half as pretty as where my baby’s at
Is this the way to Amarillo?
Ev’ry night I’ve been huggin’ my pillow
Dreamin’ dreams of Amarillo
And sweet Marie who waits for me
Show me the way to Amarillo
I’ve been weepin’ like a willow
Cryin’ over Amarillo
And sweet Marie who waits for me”

I’ve discovered a new passion – not only photographing but also growing plants and flowers – and maybe eating them too:-) After years of permanent business travel I now spend enough time at home to grow plants that survive from week to week.

In spring I planted a lot of seeds for edible flowers which developed to seedlings and now flowers on my balcony and am now enjoying the rewards.

Not only do the look gorgeous and have a beautiful perfume, they are edible too.

Calendula (Calendula officinalis) – Also called Marigolds. A wonderful edible flower. Flavors range from spicy to bitter, tangy to peppery. Their sharp taste resembles saffron (also known as Poor Mans Saffron). Has pretty petals in golden-orange hues. Sprinkle them on soups, pasta or rice dishes, herb butters, and salads. Petals add a yellow tint to soups, spreads, and scrambled eggs. Only the petals are edible.
