flower, gardening


Up here in the north the days are now long. The sun goes down at 11 PM and comes up at half past 3 AM. We are also enjoying a heatwave temperatures reaching 30 degrees Celsius.

Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) are now blooming beautifully. In May I collected some to the freezer and now I am able to enjoy the blooms.

I treat chives as flowers and have it here and there in the flowerbeds. Like their blooms and the taste as well.

The bumblebees are also big fans of chives blooms. In other words a wonderful plant – edible, blooms nicely and is bee friendly.
