"Dear Ms Wiggins;

Your articles are always enjoyable (in El Dorado Springs Sun...my hometown news).  I was especially interested in the day lily article since I have several in my yard.

I have used pansy blossoms as the finale on individual salads for years, since they are not only pretty, but tasty.  I was also aware that both roses and nasturtiums are edible, so I am happy to add day lilies to the list.

Cordially,

Fawn"

Charlotte: Thanks, Fawn, I am also a fan of pansy and nasturtium blossoms in my salads. I haven't had the heart to eat my roses yet but I have garnished guest dishes with them, much to their surprise, by the way.

Glad you now have a new way to embelish your food.  Enjoy!
