Garnish

Parts of our yard are filled to the brim with Viola Tricolors, also known as Johnny Jump Ups.













I recently found out that they are edible, so I gathered some this morning for my pancakes.


Of course, Moonshadow was hoping that they were her pancakes, but I had to nudge her away.

















This was my first time trying them. It was reminiscent of the first time I tasted honey- fragrant and floral along with a certain level of sweetness (honey being much sweeter).












It was so tasty that I decided to add another layer.
















Next up: Violet Jam.


Well I should be on my way. It's time for more fire pit building...

That shot of Moonshadow eyeing the pancakes is priceless. I have tried nasturtiums in salad, but never those. Sounds intriguing.

...love the new banner by the way.
