Chive inspiration and a simple recipe

Chive flower focus

Last night, while making dinner, I looked out into the backyard toward my sadly neglected garden and spied the chive flowers looking so lovely.

I laid down on top of the mole hills that tunnel through our lawn to capture these pretty purple beauties.

I found the sun setting through the trees and was able to capture this flare, flare that I have never seen before with any camera and I have Picture Spring to thank for it.

I’ve got to cut these flowers so my chives don’t go by and I can continue to enjoy them all summer long.

Oh, and by the way, I burned the dinner that I had left on the stove.

A family favorite recipe is mixing low fat cottage cheese with seasoned salt to taste and chopped chives. It goes great with crackers and our favorite Cape Cod potato chips.

  1. I’ve never seen flare like that before, either! Love it. These pics are so beautiful … sorry about the dinner. Maybe some chives will entice my kids to eat cottage cheese? Also a fan of Cape Cod chips over here.

    • I can’t give you hope in regards to getting your children to eat cottage cheese since mine won’t touch it either!
