Happy Calendula

Calendula, so easy and common.. but it's so pretty and a happy color too. I have some planted in a pot by the back door, where I can see it from inside the house.

It's just the most cheerful flower. And growing quite well in that spot too.

Here they are backlit by the evening sun.

They are wonderful plants and will accept the poorest of soil and seed themselves about beautifully...I always think the seeds look like little weevils.

I love your Calendula ...especially the cute picture with your feet in it! With the orange type and the orange and yellow blooms, your post is adorable!

Calendula`s are nice and have a bright colour. I have sowed them in a big area. But they haven`t started blooming yet...
I harvest and dry them at autumn.
I use them in fish dishes etc.
Enjoy the sight of yours! (:
Wishing you a nice weekend. (:

I grew some last year when i had the garden.They never self seeded though for me.My mum's old garden had loads of them.They were devils for self seeding.As fast as she got rid of them they sprung up.The hard curved seeds can lie in soil for years it seems.
I loved the flowers though, so they always have a place in my heart.The leaves are very fragrant oo when crushed...
