Why do I get to fall in love with each tree? Let me tell you why: a tree changes carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe, it sequesters carbon and provides much shelter for countless critters. There are many reasons for which we should all be tree-hugging hippies, but within the scope of this blog post, all we’ll focus on are the looks of these amazing nature wonders.

Flowers are so beautiful, they look gorgeous in their nature habitat, in our homes. Flowers are given to show love, passion, compassion, celebration, happiness. But flowers are much more than that. Lots of flowers are edible.
Arguably, the most common edible flower is nasturtium. Easy to grow, both the flowers and the lovely circle-shaped leaves are enjoyed for their peppery taste and beauty. The uses for nasturtium are multiple. Good in salads and as edible garnishes, they are best enjoyed raw. If adding them to hot foods, add at the last minute. Consider using the nasturtium leaf to float a dollop of sour cream topped with a flower in soups. Use nasturtium for color and flavor in Thai summer rolls made with rice-paper rounds so the color shines through the roll.
