From my garden I can pick a number of plants and flower petals to make delicious teas: rose petals and/or hips (depending on the time of year), parsley that I sometimes edge the beds with, chamomile flowers that pop up randomly, and lemon balm that happily reseeds where it wants -- all contribute to many wonderful cups of home brewed tea.

A few leaves from the lemon verbena growing in a pot by the back door flavors up my ice tea.

My herb garden is lined with chives (they are such a colorful wonderful edging plant), and whenever I need some for a recipe (potato skins, with chives & sour cream), I just scoot out to the herb garden, and they are ready and waiting for me.

The little Johnny Jump-ups looked terrific floating in cubes of ice, in the punch bowl, at my daughters baby shower, as well as my fathers 78th birthday party.

The garden tea spot is so inviting I can hardly wait for spring so I can add more edible plants to my yard. Thanks for the ideas.
