#ThumbnailNature – Oh Alexanders!

While I’m fond of you, frankly my dear Alexanders, you smell terrible. Spring has brought your tiny stinky sulphur flowers with lavish curls & deely bopper stamens. An aphid languidly waves antennae under my scrutiny, lumbers through the flowering umbel & then plays peekaboo behind the juicy trunk of a stem.

    Alexander’s are so vibrant and limey-green. Their smell is lovely from a distance on the spring breeze. I have tried boiling and eating them long ago, but once only!

    Agree Maggie… distance is key 🙂
