Hearts and Flowers and Bears and Leaves

First I have to tell on my girls a little. In the mini bear onigiri are little bits of pickled herring. When I brought the jar out, the girls started chanting, "herring, herring, herring!" and came out of the kitchen with forks. How could I say no to a 4 and 9 year old asking for herring? They finished the entire jar! So anyways, the top tier has carrot flowers and salted cucumber leaves surrounding hearted fresh mozzarella balls and cherry tomatoes. The bottom tier has the mini pickled herring bears on a bed of nori with some carrot hearts and organic fresh berry chews. A little hodgepodgey when I usually do the hyper organized Bentos but I still like it.
