These bright orange flowers going crazy in my veggie patch make me happy every time I look our the back windows. They seem to like the dreary weather. Perhaps they know that look even more bright and colourful when skies are grey. I think it is calendula, which has the added bonus of being edible. Calendula officinalis is commonly known as pot marigold and poor man’s saffron. You can throw it in a salad or rice or butter for colour and a little extra flavour or put it in a pot to make anti-inflammatory tea.
