So I decided to pick some of these wonderful flowers and make a salad. I read somewhere that they have a bitter taste, but that is not true at all. Arugula has a bitter taste. This is closer to the truth.
I didn't have any other greens to mix with the flowers, so I just ate those in the bowl with pepper, olive oil, and rice vinegar for dressing. It was delicious! And you could just as easily add the flowers to a regular salad, to add extra flavor, nutrition, and color.
P.S. I've taken 186 pictures since I last downloaded what was on the camera on Tuesday. Here are a few more.
Suet feeder blogging has been absent since the remote for the camera stopped working. Fortunately, this Downy Woodpecker let me approach to a point that was even closer than any I've used to date with the tripod.

Paiute Golf Resort is about 30 miles northwest of Las Vegas, and is owned by the Paiute Tribe. We played there Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, the temperature dropped Friday evening, and the wind was up. Very much! There was even a little rain and sleet on our menu. But it made the sky more picturesque, so I was happy.
