My Garden Tea Spot
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.
