Love in the Garden




Love In The Mist (Nigella)

Everyone ... I command thee ...bung some Love in the Mist seeds in your garden.
 Initially the leaves can easily be mistaken for carrots growing in the flower-bed. Don't yank them up or you'll miss the most beautiful sky-blue flowers that appear with their dainty backing-foliage. The season for these is 'mahoosive' ... as the flowers fade they taken on an equally beautiful fluffy look that slowly dries into a crispy seed-pod which as you can see are a work of art in their own right.
Mine are in full sun, grow to about 18" tall with absolutley zero care required. Normally I would have left them looking gorgeous but I wanted to scatter their seeds in other places in the garden & believe me ... there are truckloads.

I think the seeds are almost more interesting to look at then the flowers. Your post has convinced me that I should squeeze them in somewhere next year....
