Orange on grey

Beside the allotment path,
Brave calendula
Lighten the grey day
Setting fire to October.

October begins and the sky has remained depressingly grey all day. The bright orange and yellow calendula marigold is known as this month’s flower. I have been lifting my spirits by ironing brightly coloured strips of sari silk and found a wonderful orange to make a great border for an autumn leaf stitch, set on a grey blue silk. I am thankful for the fiery oranges, yellows and reds of autumn as the days become greyer.
