Pansy... oh how i love those beautiful bright little faces on those flowers. Not only are they so pretty but they can be used to dress up some desserts and look fabulous~
Then there are the *Busy Lizzies* which can be used in a salad as a garnish and safe to eat. and also in some special drinks ~ Then there is *Jasmine* which you can use to scent your tea, mmmm the smell of Jasmine is almost medicinal.
I am surprised to know that *Gladiolas* have a lettuce type of flavour and can be used in *mouse* pate, and rice fillings as well.
They are so beautiful wouldn’t that make a gorgeous presentation > Then there is *Bergamot* that tastes almost like oregano..... and Bee Balm that has a citrus taste. The list is so long.... that i have only touched... the tip of the ice burg` so go ahead and experiment ...... have fun but please do check to be sure that they are the safe ones when you pick them . And oh i I must not forget .... that you can dry the flowers.... and use them.... in your fancy *Tea time dainty cookies*.....
