Broad bean blossoms

I'm counting the blossoms, imagining the long bursting upstanding pods

and tasting the sweet freshly podded beans gently drizzled with olive oil

.....grow quickly little beans!


  1. Karen -
    do yourself a favor and eat one of those blossoms, just so. they are an incantation of the bean to come. a friend once had a glut and I made a broad bean blossom risotto. unforgettable.

  2. Oh Lily, you have me dreaming about broad bean blossom risotto.......but with our diminished stock (we're down to 6 plants) one look from faan tells me I haven't a chance!
    Unless one perhaps blows off in the wind...
