Dill for picking (not pickles)

Dill napkin ring

Yesterday I weeded the garden. The soil was like confectioner’s sugar. In this drought I do not want a single drop of the water that I am giving the garden every night to nourish the weeds. I intentionally left a big dill plant whose seeds I want to save. But now it is getting in the way of the nearby tomatoes so I decided to cut off some of the flower heads. They were simply too pretty and smelled too good to throw on the compost! So I stuck them in a vase. When I was having coffee this morning, I played with one of the flowers and turned the spike-like umbel upside down. It makes a beautiful napkin ring.
