Salad Blossoms

The chives are coming in good and heavy in the front garden. The blossoms are starting to bloom as well. The big purple balls are great in salads and as garnishes, especially on deviled eggs. Good to just pop in your mouth as well for a little garden long as you don't have to be someplace right afterwards as they tend to be a bit strong not only in taste, but in "breath scent" as well.

Too bad the blossoms are so short lived, making the window of culinary enjoyment of the buds is so short before they wither and disappear. But, then the chives are still left well into early winter!

The egyptian walking onions are thriving as well. And spreading. I don't know how long they have been in this garden except for the fact that they were here when my grandmother had it. I don't even know who planted them, but I'm glad they're here. You get a lot of use out of those little guys. The entire plant can be used for cooking in one way or another.
