And to just add to the list!!

Flowers you might not know are edible,and beautiful,

Amareth flowers
The flower of artichokes are a soft lavender color
The flowers of different types of beans
Chives (like said before)
Dill and even eggplant.
Jerusalem artichokes have a lovely yellow flower.
okra and salsify have white and light blue flowers
Suger snaps have a nice white and sometimes purple flower

I love the fern like foliage of asparagus or the tiny flowers on thyme,also like papa said,the scented geranium,weather lemon,rose ect are almost impossible to resist

Hi Papa!

I would say in the late 70s we started seeing zucc blossems over here,and seeing them used in culinary preparations.I have stuffed many a zucc blossem..but like anything that is hot and popular you have to pay through the nose for them now. What a shame for something that used to be discarded
