The turmeric is flowering - I am so glad that I moved it out here into this bed where I can enjoy the flowers
and then my nose twitched, what a beautiful scent ..... these gorgeous flowers have appeared on what I thought was galangal! No - that looks like a shell ginger flower - do I have the wrong plant, although don't get me wrong - I love shell ginger and in fact thought I had planted some amongst the flowers in the side garden. Oh dear.
well I certainly am pleased about that - pretty flowers and still a tasty rhizome - I don't see what is any lesser in that! A while back one of my readers, Desiree, said she had tasted a dish with lesser ginger in it - I wonder if this could have been what they were referring to. Gosh I will have to grind up some of that root and make a couple of cups of tea - it looks as though it fixes all ailments :)
I could have it in my lovely teacup that my daughter-in-law gave me.
