Vege Garden Flowers

Flowers from the vege garden:
1. Leek bloom and a spray of celery flowers
2. Purple sage in flower, celery flowers
3. Silver beet flower heads, they go high!
4. Nigel 6’3″ takes a stand by lovage flowers

Tapanui, West Otago. New Zealand

Leek flower head – a sphere of small mauve and white flowers sitting atop a tall, upright, very sturdy green stem. So robust! Backed by a big mass of tiny celery flowers which are a whitey-green colour.

Purple sage plant in flower – spikes of blue-mauve flowers and behind are a myriad of tiny whitey-green celery flowers.

Silver beet flower heads – amazingly long stems that reach high and have lots of side-stems of minute green flowers. The main stem isn’t very strong so the flower heads are slowly collapsing.

Nigel stands beside a lovage plant in flower. Its flower stems have grown up very tall, higher than Nigel who is 6 foot 3 inches. The stems are strong and support many yellow plate-like flowers that branch off the main stems.

  1. My folks let some parsnips go to seed this year, and the stalks go surprisingly tall and with fairly attractive yellow blossoms, like dill I think. And they’ve always liked the decorative alliums but usually let some onion’s blossom also.
