I love my Sweet William flowers. They are pink, crimson red, hot pink, and white with purple markings. I bring them to work for my desk and for our Marketing Director, Kristin Suratt, as well (I gave her a little friendship vase for her birthday in January and said I'd keep it in flowers through the year!) She mentioned the other day that Sweet William looks similar to carnations. I looked it up and sure enough, they are cousins. So I decided to have a carnation flower bed intermixed in my lavender garden. Wouldn’t that be lovely? Not to happen, however. My husband Archie said that lavender is drought tolerant and carnations need lots of water. Oh well – I will have two gardens!.
Speaking of two of a kind, Pastry Arts Unbaked 1 and 2 will be taught back to back this November. Pastry Arts 1 is taught throughout the year. This is where you learn to make Tiramisu and White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, just to name a few sample recipes. Pastry Arts 2 is a recipe development class where you will learn how to make Hibiscus Cooler and other non-alcoholic beverages, along with a myriad of other desserts including fruit tarts, cakes, and candies to sweeten the pie. All I can say is Yum!
