2013—Day 123—Star Burst

My Italian parsley has bolted and it now sports several stalks of flowers and it will go to seed soon. I recall reading someplace that parsley is a biannual herb and since I planted it a couple of years ago, I guess it’s time to plant a new one if I want to continue getting fresh parsley. The flowers at the ends of the stalks reminded me of star bursts when I looked at them this morning. Even with the tripod, I had trouble keeping focus because a slight breeze kept the long spindly stalks in almost constant motion.
