Chive Flowers

By Outofmyshed @OutofmyShed

Chive flowers

As I sit and write, I hear the wonderful pitter patter of rain in the garden. The smell outside is delicious and strangely familiar too after such a long absence. Hopefully there’ll be more rain later on today as the garden is completely parched. It’s a delightful distraction, but on with the blog now. I often add chives to a salad, but a friend suggested using the flowers too.

They also supply a gentle chive flavour and make the salad much more decorative when there aren’t many other flowers to enliven a dish at the moment, (although my self-sown Nigella look like they may be in bloom any second now). Any other edible flower suggestions from your gardens/allotments ?
