2016-07-10 Calendula

Calendula (Calendula officinalis) is an annual where we live, but it self-seeds profusely and at this time of the summer it blooms all over our garden. We gently weed it and let it have space here and there, and in this way we always have a nice supply of flowers for making calendula-based preparations.

As an added bonus, calendula flowers glow with their own unique warmth in the sunlight, and brighten up the whole garden.
