Nigella, 'Blue Stars'

(Nigella bucharica) You know what I love? Edible flowers. Love them. I love the shapes and textures and I love the worry I see on people's faces. I might like the worry the best. Bahahaha. In this world, I’d like your worry to be about a flower. Truly. Ok onward, not only are they edible and thus add beauty to everything, the whole plant is just lovely. At 12” tops they don’t demand admiration they just wait, doing their flower thing knowing they’ve got it going on. Small blue 5 petaled upright flowers that are rather bell-shaped and graceful atop strong stems. So… you could cut em and put them in a (small) vase, grace your salads and pizzas, pies and cakes or leave them be! So many choices, what’s a flower lover to do?
