Visiting my parents in Virginia this weekend I noticed my dad had put together the most beautiful and simple arrangement in our kitchen made up of the flowers he had snipped from his chive plants in the garden. The delicate and round flowers have a beautiful purple color! To look at them you would never guess that they were snipped from a plant you can actually eat!
