Calendula Flowers and a new blog I found

My flower gardens are full of Calendula plants in full bloom. They reseed easily and this is the second blooming cycle I have had this summer. I Googled calendula flowers and came across this blog, beautifully written with lovely photos,  The Little Herb Farm  from the East coast of Scotland, she has a great idea for using dried calendula flowers as well as many other ideas and valuable information.  I can't wait to try this.  Also check out my Calendula Flower Cake I made last spring for another great idea on what you can do with these beauties.

  2. Betty, the flowers are sprinkled over the top of the cake. You can use any cake recipe you want, but this one soaks the petals in milk first and then you use that in the cake.
