Wild Flax Flowers | Photoart

The flowers have been all but gone since our first hard freeze, but enough warmth has come from the sun, combined with frequent cloudy nights, for some flowers, sheltered by the weeds (which also hid our baby bunnies, this summer) to continue blooming. Once we get ice or snow, I expect even that to come to an end.

Although I’d cut and frozen the outstanding chives along the back of the house, some have put out fresh stalks, which I have enjoyed in cottage cheese, omelets and scrambled eggs, and homemade soups.
