C is for Caper

Caper Flower – click for full size image

Our very first caper flower, on a caper bush we grew from seeds collected in the wild! It bloomed last night and these are shots from throughout the day today. The unopened flower buds that you see are what are harvested and sold as “capers”. Hopefully next year, we’ll have enough to harvest a handful or two, but this year we’ll wait for the fruit!
