This was the week for the alliums to bloom! The white flowers above are evergreen scallions... we think they look like brontosaurus tails!
Then the pretty purple chives, I hope they spread more, I'd love to have a huge clump. Then there is the garlic, with the most delicious flower of all. Scapes!!!! Mmm scape omelet, scape and veggie stir fry, scape quiche and my favorite: scape pickles. Long, tender, garlic flavored pickles were great at thanksgiving last year.
Another one of my absolute favorites is blooming. Peas! This is the flower of the golden sweet peas, I love all the colors on this plant. Pretty golden stems, light green leaves, and those purple blossoms! The green peas that I planted take a bit longer to start, their flowers are bright white.
The last shock to my system was this bed...
The favas are b-e-a utiful!!! They have loads of blooms, and they have no signs of black mold, which was the problem I had a few years ago.
