Cottage journal inspirations

Flower Salads

Several common flowers are edible - and add an element of colour and surprise to an ordinary green salad.

Common flower edibles include Nasturtiums, roses, borage, marigolds, squash flowers, and violets.  


I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
