She's about to make her appearance...
Don't miss her foraged gifts this year..
I've found a recipe for a lemon redbud cornmeal cake. So beautiful and tasty, or at least I shall find out soon enough.
You can make a redbud lemonade.
I've enjoyed a redbud syrup. Good for yogurt, fruit and cake glazes, tea sweeteners, salad dressing, pancakes and more.
You can add the flower blossoms to smoothies or to salads. You can make a redbud sugar with the flowers as well. Endless possibilities.
She is one of the spring edible flower blossoms. Here I have caught her just before her bountiful glory....

I was feeling a little overwhelmed today...
I took a few minutes for myself in between my real estate work...
I decided to look for a sign...
A sign of promise and hope for good things to come...
And this little Lilac blossom called my name...
Her and many others who are reaching for the light of the sunshine will soon bless me with a wall of fragrant blossoms...
They are old and mighty bushes...about 7 in all, which delight my senses every Spring...

When I let go of my fear...
Signs of God's love surround
me in abundance...
I love the little heart in the middle of the dandelion that made itself known in my travels last Spring...

I love teapots and I love copper...
I especially like the teapots with the strainer inside...
It makes for a quick easy tea...
My intuition is telling me that I need the stinging nettle seed and wild rose tea...
Tonight I hold dear a sweet memory of a day with not so much uncertainty in our country...
So many things I am grateful for and this gratitude and faith has always carried me through uncertain times...
So for tonight...in this cold January eve in NW Ohio I enjoy a comforting cup of brew while saying a silent prayer for our world and for the healing of our people...
Be well...
