Though I have grown herbs in previous years, I don't remember ever looking all that closely at their blossoms, until this year.
The first ones that actually caught my attention were these Coriander flowers. Or Cilantro, if you prefer - I always refer to the plant as Cilantro, but the spice (from the seeds) as Coriander, and somehow Coriander flower just seems to sound better to me.
The petals are so delicate, and faintly pink which I had never realized.
The are so tiny though, that it is easy to miss...
Especially when your first concern is to keep your herbs from going to seed because you want to keep harvesting them.
I actually took these photos almost a month ago, and it has been in my mind ever since that I wanted to post them. So I decided today would be the day.
On the weight loss front
I did indeed take last night off from exercise. Being sore from workouts is one thing, but in this case I was concerned that I had overdone it and I didn't want to end up with an injury. Back at it today though, with the next phase of Charlotte's Kettlebell Experiment and then a lower intensity cardio workout - still felt I should take it slow, just in case.
Still keeping up with my Beck reading, and eating has been going well this week.
