I was using herbs that I got out of the kitchen cabinet, but it's harvest time so I'm now using the herbs and flowers I've grown in my own gardens.
What you're looking at is lavender (stalks and flowers), sage, oregano (leaves and flowers), peppermint (leaves and flowers),
sedm and allysum.
I wanted to see what I could make just from the items on that plate. The bush in the right foreground is the top of a lavender stalk. The little flowers in the center are from perrpermint. The bush in the back is made from a combination of an oregeno flower that hasn't bloomed and a flower from the lavender. The tree in the back is a dry stalk of oregeno. All the greenery is from herbs that were dried and crushed.
(pay close attention to the goat!)
There were still some unused items on my plate and so I played around a bit with the rocks and the flowers and came up with this shot.
When the plants flower, it's time to harvest. I just tie a ribbon around mine and hang them on the porch railings. They're beautiful, fragrant and delicious. Hmmm, edible bases, could make me a millionaire. Games run long and when the crips run out just reach for one of Anne's Custom Made Edible baes to nosh on.
And on that bombshell it's time to go. Stay tuned for "How To Use Chocolate To Create Edible Terrain"
It's Friday folks and you've just pissed away another week of your life. So get up off that couch, do a little dance and make a little love because let's face it, you're not getting any younger. I know I'm not.
