Chive Friday

Close up of the chives growing in the garden. I have not used photoshop on the photograph. This is what the chives look like, close up. Last year, I was fortunate to capture some bees, this year I haven't seen so many.


  1. wow, thats a great photo! Are you planning on eating the flowers or leaving them to look pretty?

  2. Purple happens to be one of my top 5 selective color choices. Your chive flowers are delicate and yet show a lot of strength. Your garden seems to be coming along really well. I'm enjoying all your progress ;o)
    Have a nice day.
    Flavourful wishes, Claudia

  3. Thanks Sooz.
    I'm planning on eating some and have done so already, very oniony. The others are there really for the bees, but I will cut some of the chive stems as and when i need them for eating.

    I'd happily wear purple every day now.
    I''m hapoing to get some more gardening done today. For a start I have a bean frame to build.
    Have wonderful weekend.

  4. Put the chive flowers in White Wine Vinegar....yummy!

  5. Little Messy Missy.

  6. Gorgeous flowers, the colours are just beautiful!

  7. Chive flowers look very beautiful.Love the purple color of the flowers.

  8. Wow! What a lovely photo of the chives! Do you use your chive flowers in your salads? I do. It gives the salad a nice touch of color and a slight onion flavor too.
