Calendula, in stages

I grew Calendula in the garden this summer and love watching the various stages of the flowers as they go from bud to fully open flower, to fading into what looks like a pile of pick-up sticks, to a seed head that could be an alien multi-legged insect. I managed to find all the stages on a few stems before the cold and snow finally ended this plant’s season. But, I’ve been saving the seeds to grow lots more calendula next year.

    1. Thanks mum. Every time I do a flower sketch my level of admiration for botanical artists is amplified.
      I think it’s the flowers that get used. The local soap and cream place use it a lot. I’ll have to ask her.
