One that got away


We usually eat all of our artichokes, especially the larger ones, so we don’t see the flowers,  but were away for three weeks and this one got away.

Parsley? A flower?

KSM-20160612-Parsley-03I was working/playing in the garden this morning. We had a great spring for growth, and we aren’t the most regimented of gardeners. That means that we have lots of volunteers in the garden (I have never planted a potato, only thinned them). Today the parsley was in full bloom. I normally leave it to go to seed. I love parsley so letting it volunteer is much easier (and more reliable) than planting it in regimented rows.

Parsley is a cousin of Queen Anne’s Lace. It is less ostentatious but in some ways I prefer its subtle charm.
