Calendula - flower with many uses

Calendula, un flor con muchas usos, flower with many uses.  Can be used not only to brighten up ones day as it did mine when I came upon it in my field at the end of a 100ft row.  Breathlessly, I stated 'que Lindo'! (beautiful!) But has medicinal uses and is one of the many flowers that are edible.  Medicinally, it is an antiseptic and antimicrobial action, helping burns, bruises and cuts heal faster.
