Hey...Do I have lilac in my teeth??

I have two things on my mind this week
  1. Jason's birthday.
  2. Edible flowers.

I found a very helpful Edible Flower Chart that has been guiding me through my journey of alternative eats, and with its help, I've been trying things left and right!

For example: Did you know that tulip petals taste like lettuce?!
Am I the o nly one who is peeved that they didn't know this sooner? Think of all of the red, yellow, and pink pettals I could have been adding to my salads!

And lilac's! They're such a treat!

Thanks for the link, Connie! Guess who else has been eating spring flowers in Wisconsin???? Well I'll just tell you: Our turtles! Mate and Luca are thrilled that they get to eat oodles of dandelions and violets! I eat violets too sometimes when I'm outside...when I was little I remember my Ranger Rick magazine telling me to make violet and cream cheese naturally, it was done. THANK YOU!
