Colour

Picked a big splash of colour for the kitchen table yesterday ... not bad for November?

Calendula

Cerise Queen

A rose we inherited with the house .. it has no fragrance, but the blooms are beautiful as a cut flower.

Currently I am picking off all my calendula flowers to infuse a herbal oil, so I can later make creams and ointments. It's great to use as the flowers grow back faster than I can pick them!

Hi Joel,

Yes, me too - I've been amazed this year just how many blooms I've had, its really true that the more you pick them the more they produce. I put these ones on the kitchen table but I'm leaving the others to go self-seed. Thanks for dropping by :-)

Hello Leslie, thanks and welcome!

Hi Hedgewitch,
Your rose is so pretty! i still have a couple that are blooming, they warm my heart whenever I see them. Your calendulas look beautiful too. Mine got a bit of powdery mildew during that dry spell in October and are looking a bit sorry now though they and the nasturtiums are still flowering their heads off! xxx
