What’s In Our Window Box ?

Winter Flowering Pansies 1
Do you remember in the summer when we were growing “leaves” in our window box as a boost to our 5 a day regime, well we ate them all …..
Winter Flowering Pansies
So, now we’re growing winter flowering pansies, which, it seems, you can eat too.  We’ve done a bit of research on the internet and found this recipe to make an “elegant hors d’oeuvre”:- you just  spread some cream cheese on a plain cracker (round or square) and top it with a whole pansy. Nom, Nom?
Hmmmmmmm, We are not too sure …..

They look good enough to eat. I hope they aren't "special" plants that make strange things happen to one's brain. In fact, they look special enough already as though one had taken such items.
My brain is addled enough even without any stimulants stronger than coffee.
