Beautiful Crocosmia with Tomato Feta Pesto Tortilla Bites
Today I’m sharing about Beautiful Crocosmia with a simple Tomato Feta Pesto Tortilla Bites appetizer recipe!
“No late summer flower garden is complete without crocosmia’s vibrant wands of scarlet, red, orange, and yellow. They offer a late pop of color when many gardens are languishing in the dog days. Their narrow, bladed foliage provides vertical accents much like gladiola leaves. The tubular blossoms beckon hummingbirds, and the seedpods that persist into fall also attract feathered visitors. Plant crocosmia bulbs in well-drained soil in fall or spring. – BHG“
Friends, I’m so in love with our beautiful crocosmia bulbs, blooming in our front and back yards right now. Not only do they give our garden a pop of red, they tie in nicely with our red front door, plus they seem to bloom forever! They are very pretty in flower arrangements.
If you’re looking for something new to add to your garden, plan ahead this fall. This fall I plan to divide and move them around to a few other places in the front yard, and a few new places in the backyard. Originally this plant was divided and given to me from my friend, Jeannie. (Below, our backyard a few weeks ago!)
Thinking of a burst of red, I made a very pretty appetizer the other night. We’re trying to entertain more on Tuesdays now, keeping the night free for a simple meal with friends or family. For years, soccer night was on Tuesday night (my husband being the varsity high school soccer coach for almost 10 years), but this year the games are moved to Wednesday nights. Yay!

Tomato Feta Pesto Tortilla Bites.
I wanted to share this very simple appetizer with you today, with the easiest ingredients to keep on hand for easy entertaining.
Start with whole wheat tortillas cut into triangles, then a delicious pesto (I always use DeLallo brand).
This was my first time to buy Israeli Pastures of Eden feta cheese. The gal at TJ was telling me that once you try this brand, you’ll never use another!
I think she may be right.
End with yummy sun dried tomatoes. There you go – an appetizer that you can make any time of year!
In fact, it’s so simple, get your kids in the kitchen to make up a platter!
They don’t get soggy, they’re beautiful to serve, and every bite … well, you can’t just stop at one. :)
What flower is blooming in your yard right now, that you just can’t get enough of? Or, have you ever tried Israeli feta cheese?
