Calendula in the October Sky

January is starting to get long and cold here in Western Massachusetts.
Catalogs are arriving to get folks thinking on seeds, which is a very good thing to be thinking about right now. Especially if you are concerned for bees. Calendula are wonderful hosts for honey bees. Last October, when all the other flowers were browned over from cold, I walked in the calendula row at Next Barn Over farm under a manganese blue sky. Thank you calendula, thank you farm, thank you bees.
