his boat, my Dad even stayed for awhile. Before we left the beach, I gathered up a bunch of petals from the rose bushes that grow everywhere along the shore here in Nova Scotia (rosa rugosa) and dehydrated them when we got home. I made rose water with the ones that didn't fit in the dehydrator, too.
In September, I'll go back to the roses and gather some beautiful red rosehips to make some jelly. Last year's batch ended up as a delicious syrup. Which, naturally, was intentional. *Ahem*. I think I might be more successful with the jelly-fying this time around.
I could use them for some of these ideas. Candied rose petals sound so Victorian and pretty. Or maybe I'll make some Rose Petal Granola. I'm delightedly excited to have a bit of time to myself tomorrow, so I think I might gather and dry some more.
