shrimp summer roll bento

I'm traveling on Monday and inspired by Debra's wonderful "in flight" bentos will be bringing a summer roll snack with crisp greens, cukes, dill and kiwi.

We visited a cool local garden center today and selected some sweet pansies and violas...some of which migrated into this bento! When I come back from my travels, mulching and selecting perennials and bulbs await. Are you also thinking about your spring garden? I love selecting tulips, iris and peonies as fall waits in the wings with deeper light and shadows...

I just love your healthy garden-fresh bento! As far as a spring garden goes, I am thinking about planting some flowers when the long northern ohio winter thaws. However, I was born with a "black thumb" and I have tendancy to kill plants. I hope to change that because I adore flowers and I would love to have a pretty garden!

Oh beautiful!! Everyone traveling will be so jealous of your delicious meal!

that spring roll looks absolutely delectable. i always expect freshness in your bentos, but this is next level: the only cooked item is that juicy-looking shrimp! the kiwi flower beautifully echoes the pretty pansy. love it!

What a lovely bento. I love all the green in there and the bunch of dill is just the right touch. Of course I always love your flowers, the purple is a nice contrast. Our gardens are way off here in Florida. Now is a good time to plant veggies. :P Have a great time traveling!

I just love the different shades, shapes and textures of green! The beautiful flowers are a nice contrast and just a touch of orange and red. Delectable! Im a big fan of the fresh spring roll, MUCH better than deep fried.
