October flower

October flower-Marigold
Meaning-hopefulness, winning grace
Scientific name-calendula officinalis; 
scientific meaning-throughout the months 
Hidden meaning-"You are my Divinity"
Other names-Mary's Gold; summer's bride; husbandman's dial

"When with a serious musing I behold
The graceful and obsequious marigold,
How duly every morning she displays
Her open breast, when Titan spreads his rays."
- George Wither, The Marigold
