Although summer is well and truly over, with this warm weather, many of the flowers of summer are still in bloom. The Pot Marigold or Calendula is one of those still gracing our gardens, which is just as well, as this is the birth flower for October.

With its wonderful rich orange or there is a yellow version, this flower has wonderful healing properties for the skin and is used by the Hindus in their ceremonies, which take place this time of year.

The flower represents warmth, elegance and devotion and looks fabulous in the low autumn sunlight.
