Artist's Description

Contrastingly coloured marigolds on my balcony from different generations of the bloom.

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.

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.
