Bloom Where You Are Planted~
I received a gift I really liked a while back.. a long while back...Edible Blossoms from Victorian Epicure and Hélène~..
I said to myself.."you must make your own" and I did..
I saved nasturtiums.. lavender,mint, zucchini blossoms, roses,so many edible blooms..
I dried them..just scatter them on a plate..put them in a dry place.. and then crush them and save them..I love edible blooms for my sweet butters.. to top off deserts..
You must be certain they are from a pesticide free garden..(mine is)..c'est la loi here..
I love looking at them fresh..and even drying up..I love crumbling them..and all their colors w/ my fingers and putting them in jars w/ home made labels.
Nature..Gotta love it..
Whip up butter w/ honey..a touch of icing sugar and these.
I have a lovely plateful of Russian Sage.. but my verdict is not out yet on it's..edibilty:)It's so pretty w/ the last rose petals..Any ideas if it is?
I miss my Calendulas..and need to find more seed ..any ideas on that also?
They just forgot to come back last year and this year..
The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”
Thich Nhat Hanh quotes
I love this photo my daughter took of Noah.. who came for lunch today sporting a beautiful potted mum in his child's arms for me:) And Timbits for his grandad:) in one of our most spiritual and lovely places to head to for a walk in the woods and a visit to a Mindful Place~
Close to home..
Fall is definitely in the air now~
I wish it lasted 5 months..then 6 months Spring and Summer and 1 month winter:)
The edible blossoms are so easy to make..and look lovely topping little desserts also~
This was the most inviting chair I saw all week~
Apart from my son-in-law's tomato table for one chair~.
I wish you a MINDFUL week~
