And What a Wonderful World It Is




If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment.

  3. It is those worlds within the white blooms that have me so enamored with garlic chives. I understand they are used in a lot of Chinese dishes but hardly ever cut mine for cooking, frankly. I just like the way they look and for me, along with their heat tolerance and deer resistance? That is certainly enough.

  5. Makes me even more hacked off that my garlic chive seedlings all died off this year, they really are beautiful flowers, and the taste of the leaves is wonderful too. Gorgeous photo.

  6. A person who appreciates the truly simple things in life is nearly always content. He/she also realizes that simple things are actually the most endearing and spectacular of all. Beautiful image and quote, Cat!

  9. Garlic chives and wild garlic flowers have the most beautiful clarity and deserve to be looked at closely.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
