Marigolds for Katrinka

For Mother's Day, bought a kilo of these for Katrinka and wrapped in a scrap of velveteen a guy in store gave me on the way home so they could be presented to her better than in a plastic bag. She posted on her Facebook page They use them here for offerings. Wasn't much open Sunday noon. Asked the woman in the stall off the road nearby for the whole bag and she said it would be expensive. How much? 30,000 rupia - about $2.25.  Two days later they're still on our dining table - and some other places. - dc
