Waiting on a Bloom


I know the trend in plant breeding is towards repeating bloomers, but there's something sweet about waiting on a bloom and seeing it and enjoying in it's own time. And I love seeing something from the vegetable garden up on the greenroof. Chives are a triple threat. Talk about form and function and a willingness to thrive in a tough environment, this plant has got it all.

Hey Anne, These were the first ones I've seen this year with buds. I didn't have any in my vegetable garden last weekend either. Hope yours are tasty. Frank, I think they are my favorite flower to eat. Probably due to the sulfur.

Plus you can eat it! Quadruple threat.
