Marshmallow: noun


A confection with an exotic past.
The marshmallow gets its name from the mallow plant that grows in marshes.
In ancient times, sap from the root of that plant was used to make medicinal syrup and ointment. Eventually, that same sap became a source of candy.
Today's supermarket marshmallow is untouched by root sap. It's made from corn syrup, gelatin, egg whites, and sugar.

 I added firefly and yellow to their tails, with glossy accents on the wings.

Besides enjoying your work, I love reading the definations you chose each day. Roasting marshmallows is one of my favorite summer things to do (says something about my love of food...). Interesting about the sap etc. Now everything is processed. Your card is lovely, great sentiment you chose and love the fireflies. Happy 4th!
