the leaves turned yellow, but other than that, it seems to have flourished all on its on. This was taken yesterday when I dropped my mom off at home. There is a smaller one behind it, and she has asked me several times to dig it up and take it home. I am going to do that this weekend. I have said several times in my blog to take flowers from someone you love to remind you of them when they are gone, and I have regretted a number of times I did not do that.
Here are a couple of ideas.
Line a tray or sheet pan with waxed paper, sprinkle with sugar to keep the flowers from sticking. Holding a single flower by the stem with tweezers or forceps, paint its entire surface with the egg mixture. Any area unpainted will turn brown. Sprinkle with sugar to coat thoroughly on both sides. Place on waxed paper to dry. Repeat until all flowers are coated with sugar. Allow to dry till crisp, which may take several hours to several days depending on the size of the flower. Store in an airtight container. Use to decorate cakes, petit fours, puddings and other deserts.
