ABC Wednesday - Round 3 - "G"- Post 71


Garlic Chives Blooms


Growing in my garden are Garlic Chives, which are now in bloom. I photographed this flower head yesterday after I had done the mowing to get ahead of the rain from Tropical Depression Gustav.

I am learning! I did not know garlic and chives could be one plant! Such delicate, pretty flowers!

Beautiful! I love Garlic Chives - and you captured the flower beautifully.

My garlic chives went kaput the year after I planted them. I had forgotten that they have white blooms instead of the purple-y pink of regular chives.
