CHIVES AT SUNSET
I've always loved the culinary as well as ornament value of Chives ( Allium schoenoprasum). Often chopped over potatoes, or bundled and placed on top of steaks and roasts, sometimes tying together bunches of asparagus, or even the lovely flowers adorning your favourite salads, chives uses are abundant. Many gardener keep them in tight rows along side other perennial herbs. Others incorporate them in their ornamental plantings adding texture and colour. In either case, they are a wonderful addition to any garden and a delicious accent to many recipes.
