Colourful Spring Flower Salad

It is Spring here on the Adelaide Plains, there are flowers everywhere and trees are bursting with beautiful blossoms.

We are still having lots of rain and it is cold at night so our Kale is still growing well and the lemon tree is bursting with large juicy lemons.

The cows, sheep and goats in the paddocks near us are enjoying munching away on lush green pastures.

Nasturtiums are making a colourful display in the garden. Eating nasturtiums helps prevent hay fever as well as making a colourful tasty salad. 

Salad for Buddha House-1

Borage flowers, pineapple sage flowers, garlic chive flowers, brassica flowers and calendula petals are all edible flowers. With all these gorgeous colours I am sure they all contain wonderful healing properties.

When you let your herbs and veggies go to seed they just reappear next year and the joy of fresh seasonal produce is a pure delight.

September is a lovely month here in Adelaide, check out the Australian Open Garden Scheme if you want to visit some amazing gardens.

Happy Gardening and enjoy your greens and flowers.

A mouth watering and beautiful salad, Maggie. No wonder you and I keep the coughs and colds at bay. Imagine if everyone ate like this.... the doctors would be out of a job!

As I'm in the UK your pic of your spring flower salad has made me quite jealous. It's freezing here in the UK and I'm longing for the spring growth but I still have months to wait!

When your garden gives you flowers and vegetables, use them both to make a salad that tastes like pure spring ;)
