Belle Basil

Sweet Basil 

It's fantastic with garlic.  Add tomatoes and any basil concoction is a match made in heaven.

Little hats for the faeries

Fairy blossoms

That's not all about basil that's from heaven. I took time in the Things I get to do today to really have a good look at the spikes sent up from the plant in preparation for going to seed. 

Tiers grow on the stalk with six round little bonnets holding space for fairy blossoms beneath. Faeries can be shy, so you might not see them directly. You can certainly feel them when you gaze at the delicate flowers.  Belle, belle!
