Birthday surprise

salad flower

This little blog is turning 1 today and I really can’t believe it’s already 12 months ago that I created this space to express my amazement and gratitude for what nature can bring about on our tiny balcony.

Since the first post was about the surprising beauty of the onion flower, let’s celebrate this anniversary with another flower, which is very different, but likewise unexpectedly pretty. This light blue beauty is the first flower of a lettuce (whose exact specification I unfortunately do not know) that decided to reproduce instead of being eaten. Who could blame him?
