That night I made a farmer's market dinner: fresh corn on the cob, steamed broccoli, baby fingerling potatoes and a big salad loaded with the edible flowers and herbs above (okay, not the big orange one second down from the left). The flowers were so pretty (and there were so many varieties!), I decided to lay them all out to see what I had. This is the result.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to eat my dinner or frame it, seriously.
Some of the flowers shown here are:
