Marigold and Mint had a few firsts this week. On Thursday, I harvested our first dozen organic roses. Here are some of them (with the Lawrence Welk-esque names of Sunset Celebration and Enchanted Evening), arranged with lavender lilacs. It’s too bad the computer cannot capture the heady fragrance.
Our first organic edible flower bloomed in the field this week, too. I picked it, shook off the dirt and ate it! So she’s long gone, but here’s a picture of the veins of purple coursing through pale yellow petals.
