My Garden - Charming Chives

 
Close to the door of my dwelling
I have a small clump of chives
nestled in my Perennial garden.. 

 
...so I can quickly run outside to snip off
a few fresh stems to spice up my salads...

 
Not only are the flowers charming,
they are edible as well.  : )
 
Don't you think they make a great addition to my garden?

  2. They are very charming! Your garden is lovely, too! I have a chive plant that is at least 10 years old. The deer won't eat it, but they do love the blossoms! But now my dogs keep them away. xoxo

  3. I have chives in the garden too and enjoy snipping them for flavour in salads etc. They also have pretty blossoms but I've never eaten them. :)

  6. I like the contrast between the purple flowers and the green stems. Butterflies always seek out my clump of chives.

  7. I too love my chives! What was two starts three years ago are now 7 or 8. lol! They sure are pretty in bloom. I'll probably take a few out in the Fall. I also have garlic chives. They bloom later with a white star shaped bloom. Fun also, and give things a slight garlic flavor. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
