Beautify A Dish With An Edible Flowers!

Beautify A Dish With An Edible Flowers!

If you are a gourmet and enjoy all benefits of delicious food, then definitely you try to improve each subsequent meal. Gourmet food is expensively delicious not only for its quality ingredients and taste, but also for its aesthetics. Aesthetics in food are making a big comeback in today’s restaurants, and for good reason. While we eat, we may think that taste is all that our brain is processing, but it’s a much richer experience than that. The smell and the sight of the food are major points in the eating experience. One of the most natural and most appealing ways to brighten up and beautify a dish is the simple addition of an edible flower! There are many varieties which are edible, and add a subtle flavor into your dish. Cooking with flowers from your garden, though, is a cautious process, as you must be completely sure that what you are serving is neither poisonous nor chemically treated.

The Dahlia Flowers

The Dahlia Flowers

The Dahlia Flowers are native to Mexico and Central America. The Aztecs used them for food, decoration and ceremonies – and in 1963 they were named as the national flower of Mexico.

Dahlia Flowers grow from tubers, so they are part of the family of plants growing from bulbs, also called bulbous plants. They are also available as rooted cuttings, which are cuttings taken from the base stem from last years plants, and grown on in compost in specialist nurseries.

There is a great variety of form in dahlias, from the showy dinner-plate size to the bright, little single ones.

Blanket Weed Algae In Ponds

Blanket Weed Algae In Ponds

A blanket weed is a type of algae with a long, stringy filament body. The body floats at or near the surface, covering water with a green blanket. It will choke out all the nutrients, sunlight and oxygen in a pond. Once blanket weed becomes established, it is very difficult to remove, and the best course of action is blanket weed prevention.
These algae do not cause the green colour that is at times seen in garden pond water; the discoloration of ponds is caused by planktonic algae. Individual cells of the planktonic algae float in ponds and cause the green water. Blanket Weed Algae, on the other hand, is made up of strands of cells that form rather long strings. People who look after ponds refer to it by a number of names, including filamentous algae, long string algae, and others.
