Chives and Dandelions

 This year we didn't plant a big vegetable garden, but I do have a few pots of herbs and some tomatoes growing in a rusty trash can.

This is one of the chive flowers. They are really tiny lavender blossoms. I like being able to cut fresh chives to go with a baked potato for supper or to season food while I'm cooking.

This dandelion flower is pretty much just a weed, but yet it has a pretty bloom! It was begging to be photographed ;)

I'll never forget what my college ag teacher told us about a weed. He said anything growing where it is unwanted is a weed...Your grass growing in my flower beds is a weed, My flowers growing in the cow pasture is a weed.
