This turned out far fancier than I intended. The local grocery store was having a sale on edible flowers (.50 for 6 orchids, ridiculously cheap!), probably for wedding season. This orchid is more beautiful than anything I could make, so I thought I better showcase it.

Try as I might, I can’t bring myself to eat it. I’m going to take "edible" as "safe to touch food" and floated it in a crystal bowl of water instead.

Birds seem to be in short supply around here at the moment so I am being forced to branch out into wild flowers!
The dog rose is a deciduous shrub most famous for its berries, or hips, that are high in antioxidants and vitamin C, and used to make tea and rose hip syrup.

Clara loves roses…..so dumb me, I bought her two dozen. But we didn’t have a vase big enough for 2 dozen so she has them in two containers.

The Rose Garden at Lyndale Park are the second oldest rose gardens in the United States, completed in 1908 (the oldest rose garden in Connecticut was also designed by Theodore Wirth). The garden features over 60,000 blossoms during peak season and over 100 varieties of roses. The most important decorative element is the Heffelfinger fountain which was brought from the Villa Montalto in Florence, Italy in 1944.
