Delicious Chives Blossom

Chives blossom attracts bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects to our garden. They are nice looking and, like many other culinary herb blossoms, are also edible!

Read Linda Gilbert's ode to chives here and see a list of other edible flowers on this blog by  Jacqueline Church.

'Chives should be deadheaded when their blooms fade. But, why waste those blooms? They're edible (and look really pretty sprinkled on a salad) and have a very light onion flavor,' writes Colleen Vanderlinden from Detroit area in the USA.

By the way, 'detroit' in French is 'a strait, a passage' and there are  towns and villages in France named just that: Detroit. American Detroit was part of la nouvelle France before most of the French colonies there were ceded to Britain.
