Flat Parsley Flowers

Last year I planted some Italian flat parsley in a planter on the side of the house. Parsley is a cool season annual herb and as soon as it warms up it sends up flowers. As is true with many annuals in our mild area, it lived all year and once again I have these pretty, lacy flowers that I love to use as filler in flower bouquets. I am planning on planting some more because I like them so much. I may even use some of the parsley to cook with too!

Very pretty...and multi-useful. :-)

I like that you can eat it and stuff baskets with it! It sort of looks like dill heads. Does it have a nice scent?

Heather, no it doesn't have much of a scent, unless you consider the parsley smell you get when you crush the leaves.
