And because I couldn’t Help it…


In search to find the words to share the precious Calendula
Field marigold, sweet daisy, wild and free, delicate Calendula
Fragrant and useful, tasty and bright the medicinal Calendula
Under-appreciated, misunderstood the lonely soothing Calendula
Said to represent grief and jealousy, the kind Calendula 
In search to find the words to share the perfect Calendula
