Thank you Jennifer! I'm a sucker for marigolds too!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Ronnie, do you know where you got yours? I can't seem to find these Marigold seeds online.

Jennifer I got mine in a trade a few years ago. I haven't seen them for sale in quite a long time. Mine didn't make seeds in time before frost so I never got a chance to save any. I keep searching and will certainly let you know if I find any.

I wonder if it is an heirloom variety.

Just checked Baker Creek. They don't have Simba but they sure have some cool varieties.

Jennifer google Yummy Mummy, it's pretty close and is also in yellow nodding
