Wordless Wednesday: Red Buds Blooming




This is also my submission for Thematic Photographic 44 - Edible. The tiny delicate flowers, which sprout directly from the stems and branches, are edible. I tried one myself. The taste reminds me of grapeseeds. They make a nice colorful addition to a spring salad of greens.

Beautiful buds! I didn't know they were edible, but then I guess a lot of nature is. :)

I ate some Red Bud blossoms over the past weekend. I rather liked it. It reminded me a bit of red cabbage.

Aside from the lovely scenes, I had never even thought that you could eat them, too! Amazing idea...wish some trees here in the Great White North would be as edibly accommodating.

Great way to reflect this week's theme!
