Time to stop and smell the roses

It's so hard for me to choose which flowers are my favourites so it usually just ends up that whatever is currently in bloom is my favourite. Here are some pics of the roses that we are enjoying right now. Anybody else remember that song I Never Promised You a Rose Garden? That's what I was humming this morning as I was weeding up front by these beauties.

After all the reading I have been doing lately about eating locally and seasonally I have been paying more attention to what we are eating, and I am quite pleased to note that we already do eat that way much of the time. This was part of our dinner last night, a spinach and strawberry salad with poppy seed dressing, even the poppy seeds were from our garden and the walnuts from our trees.

Lovely roses!

Are all poppy seeds edible? Which kind did you use?
