freckles romaine lettuce
Despite our unpredictable spring weather--down to 34 last weekend, up to 80 today--it's been warm enough overall that most of my winter vegetables are bolting (producing seeds and flowers instead of leaves.) I tend to let the flowering ones go until the last second when I absolutely must reclaim their spots for tomatoes.

The flowers attract bees and maybe a few butterflies, plus I think their airy, dainty display is really pretty.
