Question Fav flower?

Hi all,

Seeing as how it is summer and the gardens are in full bloom I was just curious (if you like them) what's your favourite edible flower?

I like pansies, they have a nice mild peppery taste.

me too, Crewsk - how did I forget them?! Also wood violets can be really nice in early spring as an addition to salads.

I love to stuff my pumpkin and zucchini flowers.

but, nothing makes me happier than finding a field of daisies
gently swaying in the breeze.

Me too pdswife!
My favourite is rose though, through and through, with lavendar coming in a close second

Crystalized petals of all sorts are lovely on so many things too!
