And they're back...

One of many self-seeded bronze fennels. Beautiful feathery fronds, good for anything a la Grecque; late season yellow flowers, favourites of pollen-heavy bees, good fresh seeds...

Green garlic sprouting with the leftover arugulas, refugees from the squirrel.

My favourite, the calamintha - like a resurrection. Peppermint nose and frothy white flowers.

The fig setting embryonic fruit and leaves. The third crop succeeded last year. This year I did not wrap the little tree, just brought it down to the floor of the terrace.
