Roses from the garden are a joy on the vine but when the time comes to dead head them make sure to save those petals for delightful kitchen treats.

Some things are made when they are needed others are made for the pleasure of learning a new craft.

  • Learn something new everyday
  • Live lightly on the planet
  • Inspire others to find joy in the simple things
  • Plant seeds that will grow for generations to come
