The other day we were workin' in the yard....we need a tree taken out...for the pool...and that means I have to help.
The man was in a tree and I had to be his spotter....video tape the fall and call 911!! Where's Roy?? Can you see him??
I'm in charge of Trixie and Ralph. If he saw this...rollin' in HIS violets....we'd all be in trouble!!!
The actual "lift that bale and tote that barge"....and tree cuttin' is left to Roy. And it has to be done in such a way that it doesn't fall on that old buildin' or any of the surroundin' fences...not an easy task.
So I just stand back and fetch whatever he may need....and I eat the violets...the actual flower.
...and the honeysuckle nectar
....and clover flowers.....he brought me 2 more 4 leaf ones just yesterday
....and the mints
....and the marigold petals
....and sage flower nectar is actually sweeter than honeysuckle!!
I have lots of herbs and edible grasses and flowers.
And right in the middle of my munchin' on honeysuckles, Roy yells at me to go get somethin'...."Hey!!"
I jumped like had my hand in the cookie jar....I had half a honeysuckle hangin' outta my mouth. "Stop eatin' the flowers and go get me a rope!"
He liked to had a cow when he saw me eatin' the HIS violets!!!
The one I regret puttin' in my mouth was lemon balm....it did something to my lips that lasted 3 days!!!
Like alum....More like pouty lips than puckered!
Not even the spearmint would take it out!!!
I wonder if the tags were switched at the nursery? That happens...one year I had banana peppers instead of bells!!
And DO NOT EAT FENNEL!!! Unless you like licorice!!
Gross, Gross, Nasty, Nasty!!!
Since that bad experience with the fennel and lemon balm or lemon mint or whatever it was....I just chew the flowers or grass and then spit it out.
And I do not recommend eating Peonies either!!
