"The flowers of the potato, delicate petals whose stamens bunch together to form a point, are amongst the most charming in the vegetable garden. Marie Antionette wore them in her hair. Summer rain and even cloud makes their flowers close and droop like a swan in repose. As dusk falls, they gently close." Nigel Slater
