Five Guys Cheeseburgers & Hoptimum Triple IPA

Chinese Chives, Garlic Chives, Allium tuberosum
 
This photograph was taken our home garden in Kentlands within the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland. Chef Dolores likes to have Chinese Chives in our garden. I like to photograph the small flowers.

We have a trellis magnolia in our home garden and I fully appreciate the pure white blossoms for an occasional photograph. This is a good way to have a magnolia in your garden without taking the space of a full sized tree.
