Just came home from the grocery store

It probably goes without saying but my favorite things in the grocery store are the packages of edible flowers.
Once, when I had a broken heart,
and really could not eat, I tricked myself by making salads entirely from flowers. And it worked!


  1. We had a tradition growing up where we decorated all birthday cakes with real flowers. These are so beautiful -- happy birthday!

  2. I remember when I was a small child, Mom once had a fancy decorated cake for my birthday. I cried, and said it wasn't a real birthday cake--it didn't have real flowers.

    It is a tradition which continues in my own family to this day.

    I can't imagine what an entire salad of flowers would taste like! Come summertime, I shall have to try it!

  3. Wow cool,... just wondering by...anyway they should sell stuff like that here in utah....the dandylions from my yard are getting a bit old (read boring)We have these terrible plants here that we call goat heads because the terrible poky seeds are shaped like a goats head. They are so hard and sharp if you are walking in thin soled shoes you have to avoid fields of disturbed soil gone wild. Man those things hurt but they used in a lot of herbal remedies and make good tea, they have cute little flowers this time of the year i belive...I have been spening ours harvesting wild things from my yard.
