My son and I enjoyed some lawn-wildcrafted violets this evening. How my heart does backflips when his wee voice says "thank you violets!" When I joined him outside I noticed he had something green in his mouth. "What are you eating?" "Chickweed!"
I always envisioned sharing my love of herbs with a child. But I couldn't fully imagine the joy. And violets are especially yummy in mint chocolate chip ice cream. (Take note, FAK!)
