The Leaves of Spring

Buds are bursting on the trees which means two things; 1. Summer is nearly here and 2. Allergies! But, I still am excited for the change so this bento is leafy. I'm a bit sad (not as sad as Annie is to lose her favorite tooth but that's an entirely different story) because my maple leaf cutter is coming apart at the seams. It was my second set of cutters I ever bought for bentoing. I guess it's telling me I've been at this a while now, so that's good. The top tier is kiwi and grape filled with a couple of sunshine bear picks tucked away. The middle tier has three fish cakes with cheesy springy leaves. The bottom one is filled with steamed and buttered broccoli and carrot leaves. Eat up, Annie!
