Basil flowers

Pink basil flowers

Yes, I’m still in the garden. It’s that thing called a summer cold which dragged me down for 2 weeks (!) and the only place I have enough energy to get out to is the herb garden. I know that I’m supposed to pick the flower heads off the basil because it makes the leaves taste bitter. But I’ve failed in this regard and photographing them seemed less labourious. It’s less exciting without the bee, but far more delicate.

  1. I know you have to do it, but it always seems a shame to cut the flowers off the herbs, especially when the bees like them so much. Your picture is lovely and summery and very delicate. I hope you feel better soon. 🙂
