Basil Flowers


My basil plants came back on their own this year! Some grew in their pot from the previous year, and some grew in my garden area.  Since they were plenty, and we could use them all; they flowered.  These beautiful little white flowers were just very beautiful to see.

My little point and shoot camera gave all she had, as I zoomed all the way in.

  2. Icy, I did not realize how beautiful the flowers are of the basil. I always use this herb on my pasta sauce.

  4. You did just fine with your point and shoot. I have one too, and love it. Nothing wrong with the camera in mh case, it is just the operator.

  17. These are so nice!
    I've never tried to winter over my basil. I did not think they would make it, but I am surely going to do it this year!
    Thank you for the inspiration!

  22. Your little point and shoot did a great job. It isn't the camera but the artist behind the lens that takes the photos. Beautiful flowers.

  23. I love basil and, even more, I love argula. I would like to grow pots and pots of each so I'd have a never ending supply.
