Thoughts on all things garden themed from an antique dealer gone amuck! I write, play with the dogs, and fill my house with garden art. There is hardly time to work the dirt!

Oh these smell good! But can I eat them?

Foxy Likes To Sniff The Pansies

Yes, dear Foxy. There are edible flowers. You Can Eat Flowers From the Viola Family.
A perfect spring treat! Pansy popsicles!
Lemonade made from dry mix and water. Violas or pansies.
Mix lemonade as per package instructions.
Pour into forms or paper cups about ¾ of the way full. (Use small paper cups). If using paper cups place cups on a baking sheet.
Place a few pansies or violas into the lemonade and place cups or forms in the freezer.
If using cups wait a few hours then when mixture is hard enough but still soft insert popsicle sticks and continue freezing until hard.
Pop out of form or cups and serve.
Yummy and cool. A perfect treat while sitting on your patio after a hard day of gardening!
