late may bento

Hello bento friends! Late May blooms including purple clematis, blue nikko hydrangea, and mint flowers accented today's bento, which contained broiled tilapia with cumin and coriander, a goat cheese heart with pistachios and mint, a heart shaped pita, a ripe apricot, oregano, mango, kiwi, green plums, and my new obsession, flowering chives!
The blue nikko hydrangea shrub has really grown in size this year...
Wishing everyone a wonderfully fun and relaxing weekend!

Oooh, I really love the clematis and apricots!
I've never tried tilapia, so I'm very interested in it. The chive flowers added grace to your bento, lovely garnish.

Have a wonderful weekend, too, Jenn and the kitty! :D

Hi there Anncoo! Very cool...this kitty, Sophie, lives next door and seems to be adopting us. She's a real doll!

Hi Izumi, how are you? Glad you enjoyed these tokens of late spring, always so nice to visit with you...wishing you a great weekend with your family!

Hello Asfora! Yes indeed...the lavender colored petals can be scattered and impart pretty color and a soft onion flavor :)

Hi Tata! Yes, flowering herbs are the best! Hubby and I are looking at your amazing new post of the cultural fest, loving the pictures! What kind of camera did you use?

Lyndsey said...

That's funny, the kitty looks like our neighbor's cat who is always at our house, and seems to have adopted us!
