Great shot Popeymike.

My Chives have about 7 or 8 'buds' that look like they're ready to flower into what you have here.
How long does it take for them to flower ? How long are they in flower for ?

Should be out anytime in the next few days -the flowers last a good while and I usually get a second flush late on in the year. You can easily save the seeds too. This is possibly my favourite plant - looks great and tastes great- wouldn't be without it.

I've never tried them! I know you can eat the flowers of some plants but i'm not sure about these- I'm sure someone will tell us!
