The nigella (Love-in-a-mist) is another flower in my garden that grows without me having to plant it. My flowers come in a range of blues from indigo to sky. The formation of the flowers looks so exotic, you wouldn’t believe they grow almost like a weed!
Like the poppy seed heads I mentioned in my last post, I love the way the nigella seed head is clearly visible growing in the centre of the flower.
Like the poppy seed heads mentioned previously, I have tied a small bunch of nigella together with a rubber band and hung it up to dry in my kitchen. I can’t resist free dried flowers! They will be ready in 2 or 3 weeks.
