Today is the last day of National Allotment Week and every day this week we have eaten from the allotment – broad beans, runner beans, golden beans, purple dwarf beans, courgettes, patty pan squash, tomatoes and a chilli.
I keep hoping that there will be more than one Courgette flower so that I can play with stuffing them! Although, as Shirley Conran once said, “Life’s too short to stuff a mushroom,” so maybe it’s too short to stuff a courgette flower! They are pretty though.
Nothing Gold Can Stay
Nature’s first green is gold,Her hardest hue to hold.Her early leaf’s a flower;But only so an hour.Then leaf subsides to leaf.So Eden sank to grief,So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.Robert Frost
