There are lots and lots of edible flowers. Some of the first to arrive in the spring and very plentiful, I might add, are those of the redbud tree. I hear the pods produced later in the season are also edible and are similar to pea pods but I can't attest to that yet as I haven't tried them. ( I will) But in the mean time I will be adding the delicious flowers to brighten my salads. Notice also the sprouts of the pea plant included in this pretty salad.
