(Calendula is another one of my favorite annuals and makes itself useful not only in the garden but also if you like to make your own skin care products. Steeping the petals in a carrier oil–I like extra virgin olive oil–for several weeks first makes a wonderfully soothing salve.) If you’d like me to send you a packet (Sorry, U.S. only) leave me a comment to let me know you’re interested. The seeds have all been claimed, thank you!

In other news: I had planned to do a shop update about a week ago but came down with Bronchitis instead–oh joy! So, haven’t had any studio time since I’ve been in bed for 7 straight days–although I did watch about a billion episodes of Friday Night Lights and can’t believe how good that show was. Anyways, I hope to be back in the saddle sometime by mid week with some new rings to share with all of you.

I know most of us are feeling like spring is never going to get here, but it will, I promise. Hang in there, we’re in the homestretch now.

  1. I just found your gorgeous blog! I’ in love with your roses… all of your flowers! You’ve inspired me to tend to my garden again this summer. It was sadly neglected last year. ๐Ÿ™

    But… what kind of camera do you have? More so, what kind of lens? I have a Canon entry level camera, but I cannot get such gorgeous close up shots like yours with my 50 mm lens. What are you using? I love love LOVE your photos!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Oh, and yes yes yes to Calendula! It is the oil /essence that my son had in all his lotions, potions and shampoos when he was a baby! In fact, we still use some of the oil and the ointment from Weleda. They have a baby line that uses only Calendula. Love it. Never knew what the flowers actually looked like! Would be incredible to grow it this summer! He’s six now! (You can check out my blog to see his photos!)

  3. I’m not sure if I am the fourth person or not. If there are any calendula seeds left, I would love some.
    I just found your beautiful IG feed and blog today!
    Thank you!

  4. Andrea, Kelley and Theresa–We went a bit over the 4 packet mark but I think I can scrounge up a few more. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll be in touch soon for your address!

  5. I’ve seen those…before. I didn’t know they were seeds pods! I thought they were infested with worms & wouldn’t touch them. I’ll be on the look out now!!
