AUGUST love in the mist etc

August 8, 2011

The roof garden is bejeweled with flowers and looks very pretty.  Tiny sapphire blue nigella flowers, caged within spiky green tendrils, are blooming in a shallow tray of dirt.  Romantically known as love-in-the-mist, nigella seeds are edible and can be sprinkled onto salads or mixed into bread and cakes.

Delicious oregano is delicately iced with sparkling diamond white flowers, velvet violas burn in purple and yellow,  tangled knots of sweet-peas continue to bloom in old baskets and  fill the air with a fuggy, rich perfume.  Fragrant spikes of lavender are worshipped by bees and butterflies, and twisting runner beans are all strung about with rubies.
