    Highly recommended!!!

    Just love this book. Great recipes, photos and how to grow the flowers too! I like that it lays flat so I can look at a recipe. I didn't know you could eat this many flowers. Roses, lavender, redbud and even daylilies! So far my favorite recipes are the Oven roasted green beans with onion flowers and the rose petal ice cream. Yummy!
