Living Elegantly on Less - Building Relationships - Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing)
So, we're having a party this weekend. Actually our annual wild leek (ramp) festival. I fear the rain is going to make a wet day of it but we don't need to succumb to the gloom eh?
I'm making violet flower ice-cubes to brighten up the punch bowl.
Just go pick the flowers off the violets (not your African violet in the house). Both of these pictured grow on my lawn and have the heart shaped leaves. The leaves, stems and flowers are all edible and not offensive in taste. So when those ice-cubes melt just have a munch on the flower.
If you use distilled water it will tend to be a clearer ice-cube. Oh and you could also freeze a tiny leaf or two for some variety.
