A few weeks can make such a difference in a garden. Flowers fade as their time to shine passes and the focus shifts to new faces. It is the garden recreating itself, keeping the landscape fresh and interesting.

|Nasturtiums and spent chive flowers|
The Batchelor's Button and Chive flowers are on their way out but revitalizing my landscape right now are several new edible flowers: Bee Balm, Sunseed Sunflowers, Nasturtiums, Lemon Drop and Gem Marigolds, and Borage, all making their first appearances of the season. They add new colors and textures to the garden and add new flavors to our salads and sandwiches.
How delightful for the cook (me) to have new ingredients to play with every few weeks. Change can be delicious.
What's blooming where you are?
