Chive Flowers

My herb garden is growing fast and furious and these lovely chive flowers that I photographed only a short time ago, on the 3rd of June are now almost finished. These were particularly abundant this year and I was glad that the dahlia planting had not yet happened behind them, so I could lie flat on the soft earth to get a good angle on them for the photograph. I seem to be having a run on pink or pink and white flowers at the moment, so for all who appreciate PFD (pink flower days) hope you are enjoying it. With literally hundreds of flower photos to choose from now, (it is an addiction, I fear) I have real difficulty in choosing one each day and I sit and mentally dither for ages, trying to pick just the right one. Honestly, it’s worse than having too few, being faced with this embarras de richesses. In the end I have to just force myself to choose and be done with it, which is what happened yesterday in selecting this! I hope you have a day without dithering where you achieve what you set out to do. Hugs to all. A Flower a Day #284  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )

    1. Good to hear from you Len, I’m glad for your blue skies as we have the same here.
      Must remember that for my next tofu scramble. Thanks Len, have a good night (now).

  1. It’s a shame you let them die off as they are edible, but I’m sure you knew that. They are vaguely reminiscent of clover flowers but on much longer and more slender stems that can bob and wave in the wind. I love their colour, just because it’s purple. The way you’ve captured them, I can picture a whole field of small purple fuzz balls weaving and cheering in the sun. Thank you, Ellie, for this herbaceous delight.

    1. That’s so true, they are more than just edible and make a delicious addition to any salad, it even a garden snack. You should have been here to help us get through them. I made a really good chive flower vinegar (faintly pink) a couple of years ago. Thanks Janet.
