Smorgasbord Blogger Daily – Thursday 24th June 2021 – #Environment Carol Taylor, #AuthorQuirks Marcia Meara with Harmony Kent, #Floral #Syrups New Vintage Kitchen

Just a handful of the great posts I have read over the last few days… and I hope you will head over to enjoy in full.. thanks Sally.

This week Carol Taylor shares environmental issues beginning with the letter I…and one of the most shocking issues that will shock you is the number of Injection Sites there are in the US…and what they are injected with.

Welcome to my Environmental A-Z…still an A-Z but with a difference …

The idea for this series came about because as my regular followers and commenters know I am passionate about the health of the world I am living in… however often when I am researching and reading articles I come across terms and have to look them up which spawned the idea for this…two-fold… it increases my knowledge and I hope yours…

The best way to predict your future is to create it...Abraham Lincoln.

Indigenous species…Plants and animals that are naturally found in an area…

Endemic species are those plants and animals that exist only in one geographical region…No human interference brought a native species to the area or influenced its spread to that area. Native species are known as Indigenous species.

The next post is from author Marcia Meara who has just begun a new series...Ten Things You May Not Know About Me?  and this week Harmony Kent shares some interesting snippets.

Moving right along with our new series, today’s guest is my good friend, Harmony Kent. I know you are going to enjoy (and be impressed by) her Ten Things list, so let’s make her welcome! Take it away, Harmony!

Time to end with a recipe I think.. and I popped into Dorothy’s New Vintage Kitchen to see what was on the menu and found this recipe which will complement the little bit of sunshine we have at the moment whilst I read in the garden.

Rose and Strawberry Summer Drinks – Sangria or Lemonade

When your roses smell good enough to eat, drink them!

It’s been an amazing rose season this year. The air, especially at dawn and dusk, is filled with beautiful perfume, and how we wish it would last. My favorite roses are the old garden roses, once-blooming heirloom treasures that carry so many flowers they bend under the weight. They are beautiful and intensely fragrant, so much more so than most of the modern roses. The old garden roses include my favorite Gallicas, Damasks, Albas, Rugosas, and Bourbons. They were all discovered or bred prior to 1867 when the first modern hybrid tea rose was created.

It has also been an incredible strawberry season, and since rose and strawberry go so nicely together, what better way to feature them than a beverage for a gathering. Both alcoholic and nonalcoholic versions are refreshing and delicious, and you can control the flavors by how much rose simple syrup you choose to add, and how many strawberries.

  1. Carol does a great job of bringing issue to light, Sally. It’s all connected, isn’t it? Food, water, air, the environment. We need them all to be healthy. And a delightful peek into Harmony’s ten things over at Marcia’s. And rose lemonade is delicious! Now I can make it. 🙂
