Template made from a grocery bag...


Here's a fun idea...

Taken from "The Sand Hill Diary"... a fun blog - (Read it here!)

After getting a "little tired" of all the Snow... she created flowers
to look at in her yard... with a bit of Food Coloring in Spray Bottles
and a Template made from a grocery bag...

It's a fun idea... and something that will certainly have the neighbors
talking... 


P.S. Snow- it's #BetterWithFlowers!

I thought it was pretty interesting... Kangaroo Style!!!


A Native to Australia... the Kangaroo Paw Plant is named after the famous
Marsupial...

Not only because of the "fuzzy" exterior of the flower bud... shown here in Bright Red...

But because the Kangaroo "Paws"... or more descriptively "Claws"...
have 5 appendages... just like a human hand... and when they are open they look very much like the open bloom of the Kangaroo Paw Plant...shown here in green!

So now you know... I thought it was pretty interesting... 




P.S. High Five... Kangaroo Style!!!

Edible Certified USDA Organic Flowers


Winter time is a great time to try out new recipes...
and I remember an ad campaign way back in the 70s...

"Put Flowers on the Menu Tonight"... and it was referring to a
bouquet of flowers... (Still a GREAT Idea By the way... ;)

I found these edible Certified USDA Organic Flowers... at the grocery
store.. next to the herbs... Yep... in Michigan! Can you believe it?!!

I added the flowers to our salads... Snapdragons: sweet and fruity...
Pansies- slightly peppery... and Marigolds...tangy with a touch of spice!

It was a great addition... plus... what's not to love about eating flowers!

P.S. Everyone can Put Flowers on the Table... in a vase OR even on the Plate!
Bon' Appetite!!!!!
