Edible Blooms

I admit that I'm usually not a big fan of flowers in the house. It just seems such a waste. Especially if they have to be imported or grown at the wrong time of year or grown intensively. The part of me the can accept that it's sometimes necessary to grow food in the same way scoffs at the idea of using the same methods for decoration. I suppose I have more of a puritanical streak than I like to admit. And in my own conflicted way I'm still an eager and grateful recipient of cut flowers.

But these are guilt-free. Obtained neither by pouting or paying out myself these come straight off the balcony. Rather eccentric too with cornflowers being nestled in fennel leaves and the flowers of bolted rocket.
