Calendula is blooming at the farm! Like bright suns. I picked some to make a healing oil, but I didn't have time to sterilize the jars so I just dried the blooms for winter teas. It is good for stomach aches and menstrual cramps and is also an immune booster. I like to drop the dried flowers in a cup of hot water and see them unfurl and bloom again. In the cold winter, it reminds me of this gorgeous summer blooming time.
The ducks are getting so big! They're blooming, too.
