Have you ever seen something so cute/pretty/fuzzy that you just want to hold it up to your face and take a bite (think kittens and little crocheted animals)? Well, I’ve found myself reacting this way toward vegetation, specifically pretty flowers that are blooming everywhere. With a little research, to my delight I’ve found list upon list of edible flowers guides. This is helpful in getting started with nutritious nibbling, edible exploration and spicy snacking.
I am no expert, so as a word of caution, just like anything in nature, be aware of what you’re eating, where it came from, and what’s possibly been sprayed on it, before you determine it safe to put in your mouth.
For further adventures in the world of pretty edibles, look for these titles at the Library:
