Is it possible to have a favourite flower? It is like asking which is your favourite child. One week you'd say one
If I had one, it would be this:
Orange Calendula. The petals are shimmery and luminous and so vivid.
I had them popping up all over my last garden and I've introduced them here, They are starting to seed around. They are in this vase with Corydalis ochroleuca (I think) which is a little plant with cream flowers. I bought one from Hestercombe and it is now seeding around as well as flowering for most of the year.
My vases are getting smaller but I'm still finding colourful things to fill them.
Would you dare to choose a favourite flower?
