A Rose Petal Tea Party and Rosemary and Rose at the Flower Show!


My Herbal Companion, Bonnie and I went up to one of our favorite herb shops, The Village Herb Shop in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.  We were treated to a rose petal tea party with both rose petal tea and jasmine flower tea with goodies like cherry chocolate cake, ginger cookies, tart cherry scones with lemon curd and vanilla/cherry mini cupcakes.  Kathleen Gips, owner of The Village Herb Shop always gives a lovely tea presentation.  The two ladies in the second photo were the educational/entertainment called Herbal Theatrics.  Connie Williams (Rose) on the left and Karen Rodachy (Rosemary) on the right were both entertaining and educational.  This was their newest program, Rosemary and Rose at the Flower Show.  Ladies, you were very funny.  They also have programs on lavender, thyme, a one on chocolate and bay.

If you would like Herbal Theatrics contact information, please leave me a comment or e-mail me (put Herbal Theatrics info in the subject line) and I will get you their information.   Have missed going to The Village Herb Shop.  It was a wonderful day!  From Don't Throw in the Trowel by Texas Bix Bender:

Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.

Will post the horseradish jelly recipe tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by.  Talk to you later.

Mmmm...Jasmine tea is one of my favorites and I have the hardest time finding a good batch of it around here.

It looks like you had such a wonderful time!
