|~ start of Violet Honey Syrup ~|
I'm experiencing a bit of Gardener's Anxiety (thank you TJ for that definition!), so this was exactly what I needed.
Remember all those lovely little violets I have growing in my yard? Well, one thing I gleaned from everything we talked about was that violets can be used medicinally in teas & in a honey syrup.

The following day I removed the spent flowers & warmed the liquid up again so that I could add the honey. I found another cluster of blooms in the backyard & tossed them into the bottle & the mix went a fantastic shade of purple!

I will gather the next harvest of blooms to dry & use in teas this summer.
Next month I am headed back to Cumberland to partake in another day course about growing a Medicinal Herb Garden - which is perfect timing as I am redesigning & replanting my entire growing space.
