But we are determined to hold onto this idea while figuring out new ways to meet the changing needs of customers on their own journey.

summer flowers that taste great in salads.

Australian Native violet Viola hederacea These dainty little flowers bloom for most of the year and have a very mild taste that’s similar to a pea, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Toss the whole flowers through salads (with the edible leaves, if you like), use them to decorate cakes or freeze them in ice cubes for the prettiest summer drinks. Avoid eating any other part of the plant. African blue basil (Ocimum kilimandscharicum × basilicum 'Dark Opal’) This unusual basil variety develops into a decent-sized shrub, is known for attracting bees, and grows year-round—which is perfect for lovers of pesto. The flowers make delicious garnishes for salads and soups, and flavourful swizzle sticks for cocktails and mocktails.

truths by yumi stynes

Every now and then during my day job as a radio presenter, we’ll record an interview that is just so dull that there’s no way we can use it. We had one of those last week. I’d wanted to get to the bottom of why girls’ and women’s pants often have fake pockets: they look like a pocket, they feel like a pocket, but they’re actually sewn shut in what I consider to be a cruel mockery of a primal need. Our producer found the head designer of a big clothes company you’ve definitely heard of–someone we considered a qualified candidate to solve the mystery on air. But when we hit record, she didn’t actually have a clear answer and only wanted to plug her brand. BORING. And actually, I already knew…
