Did you know lilac blossoms are edible?
My neighbour has a number of beautiful old lilac trees growing on his property and has generously given me license to take what I want (including his abundance of rhubarb which should be ready next week!).
So yeah, lilac blossoms.
They're a little bitter and taste kind of how they smell.
I read somewhere that they taste lemony.
Mostly they're just soooooooo pretty.
