I got home tonight almost too late to take my long-planned photo, the “Chives of March.” Well, it wasn’t really long-planned…maybe about a week, to be honest. But the way I take photos for this blog, actually planning something for it is extremely rare. A week or so ago, while I was outside waiting for the hummingbirds to bathe, I noticed that my pot of chives was thriving and I took a couple of shots of it. Then I realized that photographing the chives on the Ides of March would be amusing (probably only to me) so I planned to take some shots of the chives for today. But, it was past 11 when I got home and it was too dark to get the shot I originally planned. Then I realized that cutting off a few leaves and chopping them up made for a better subject anyway. My house now smells of chives. Et tu, Brute! I may have to start calling my chive plant Brutus.
