This is Calendula, commonly called pot marigold. It is one of those rather lovely, unfussy little plants that will grown anywhere, so long as it gets a little sun. Apart from prettifying gardens and borders, it has traditionally been used in soups and broths (hence its name) for the colour it adds, as well as liquors and custards. It may not enhance the flavour, but good-looking food surely makes the belly readier to receive its fill. The Creator gave us the means by which we might enjoy life- not just with our hands, ears and noses- but with our eyes. God saw that it was good, and He beckons we do likewise.

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20
