🌷Press em in 🤗 // Did you know that I press my flowers + herbs into the cookie dough before baking? // I don’t use raw egg whites or extra sugar to candy the blooms (who really wants to eat raw eggs anyway?) // My technique makes it so that these blooms can also be pressed into vegan doughs // 📸: @jessicamenda // #ladychef #flowerpressed #edibleflowers #cookies

Botanical syrups in moody shadows // I take my favorite florals, herbs or roots and slow boil in a 1:1 pot of cane sugar: water 💦 then let infuse for several days before spiking sparkling water + juice blends for virgin or add to mezcal / gin for an alcoholic beverage // motto is : keep it colorful, keep it botanical

🦋Morpho menelaus🦋 butterfly, swipe to see the camouflaged backside of this beauty // Profile: these butterflies come from the rainforests in South America, they feed off fallen ripe fruits, and live most of their lives alone except during mating season 💕Their existence is threatened by deforestation + hunted by hungry birds

On this lovely Saturday I’d like to offer you these carnation petals, which are happily growing in gardens all across the land // Pink and purple hued carnation petals represent gratitude + whimsy, while red petals symbolize true love ❤️// In the Victorian era, whence culture was prim + proper, bouquets of flowers were given to express emotions that were not appropriate to say aloud, a historical fact I find utmost interesting ✨🌸👒🦋
