Artist's Description

I’ve discovered a new passion – not only photographing but also growing plants and flowers – and maybe eating them too:-) After years of permanent business travel I now spend enough time at home to grow plants that survive from week to week.

In spring I planted a lot of seeds for edible flowers which developed to seedlings and now flowers on my balcony and am now enjoying the rewards.

This marigold not only looks gorgeous, it smells delicious and is edible too. I didn’t have the heart to eat the first blooms though.

Calendula (Calendula officinalis) – Also called Marigolds. A wonderful edible flower. Flavors range from spicy to bitter, tangy to peppery. Their sharp taste resembles saffron (also known as Poor Mans Saffron). Has pretty petals in golden-orange hues. Sprinkle them on soups, pasta or rice dishes, herb butters, and salads. Petals add a yellow tint to soups, spreads, and scrambled eggs. Only the petals are edible.
