From last spring at the garden, a piece of Syringa Patula, a manchurian variety of lilac called "Ms. Kim."

delicious! (it is entirely acceptable to call flowers edible, right? and to stick your nose in them to truly appreciate the delicateness of their petals? right.)

If I were in Cali, I'd be back for round two, or three, of flower school. Of course, the day y'all want to mosey over to Austin, TX I'll be all over it!

Happy new year! These beauties look good enough to eat - there is something scrumptious about them :)
