Some blue flowers for Ellen 😉
Tuesday, May 11, 2021
A stiff breeze was blowing away blackflies today so my Walking Buddy and I went for a stroll.
The violets were out
...even some white ones
...and vinca under the daffodils
...these are leaning toward magenta, but I’m counting them anyway.
We also have some flowers with yellow, going on:
...including these, of which we enjoyed steamed leaves with dinner last night. Tasty with a little balsamic vinegar drizzled over them.
According to Wikipedia, they were brought to North America on the Mayflower for their medicinal benefits. I wonder whether my ancestor Richard Warren liked them? Did they even have balsamic vinegar in Plimoth?
