Violets in Bloom

Just a few beginning to bloom today.  I am hoping to have a dozen or so to place in ice cube trays for Easter Lemonade.  Light showers today, that should burst more into bloom.

Floral Ice Cubes:
Add water to the ice cube tray until only half full and place one flower in each cube. Freeze until firm. Then add water to the top and freeze again.  Freezing it in two stages will keep the flowers from floating to the top of the cube.

  1. I shall try this, Carla. As soon as I get some of my violets. There is just something so sweet about them. Happy Easter days. T.

  2. What a beautiful garden and your cake looks wonderful. I came across your blog on Becca's and thought I would check out your garden. Have a nice day.

  3. Thank you Ladies! I hope you all have a wonderful Easter too.

  4. This would be so cool to do with the kids! Carla, you have such great ideas! :o)

  5. Thank you Carrie. Also since you are growing some veggies now you might want to buy a package of Borage Seeds. They are easy to grow and the flowers purple/blue and perfect for ice cubes.


Thank you for taking time to visit my blog, I love hearing from you, stay as long as you like, Carla
