Borage

Borage is one thing that grows well in our garden (tomatoes on the other hand failed miserably this year…). The borage plants with their pretty nodding flowers in shades of blue and violet are a favourite of bees and are often abuzz.

Borage flowers are edible, and make pretty additions to salads. They are also the perfect size to fit into an ice cube tray. So the other day we decided to see what borage flower ice cubes would be like. Quite sweet actually…little purple blue flowers frozen in ice.

We had them just in glasses of water, but I think they’d look great in jars of lemonade as well!
