The extreme heat of the last few weeks has killed all the flowers. They haven't just wilted, they have dessicated. Just as well I am a huge fan of vegetable blooms. If truth be told, I find these the most interesting of flowers. Although their presence means the vegetables are well past their edible prime, they are resplendent with their crown of seeds atop their very long stems.
When I am not busy sewing down at our island retreat, I love spending time in my organic edible garden or in the kitchen.
