On vegetable gardens and a little spring salad

The flowers have bloomed on fava bean plants.
Rocket, has already made its way to dishes and plates.
There has been omelets flavoured with herbs,
and fresh pesto filling my jars.

It's certainly a great feeling to know what's in my plate,
and with the outmost respect, I harvest my veg.
I cook them with grace and display them like jewels.

Even a small urban garden gives more that it takes!

  1. Nice shots, you’ve got the light just right! Looks like I could reach out and pick up that lettuce!

  3. Your images are stunning yet again, but I’m truly in love with that shot of the green peas against that almost ebony back ground. Glorious!
