Desperate for Spring -- Eating Flowers

Spring flowers haven't sprung.  Hungry for them.
If you are too, go to this link from Johnnys Seeds blog for a video on Edible flowers:

For what's edible and what is not see this link from What's Cooking America:

And a scolding to those dear deer who will be eating what they shouldn't....before I get to them....

thanks for the edible info...
since i have more mushrooms than flowers...
i've thought about trying to figure out if i have edible ones here...hmmmm, but some mushrooms are pretty poisonous...i'm not sure if i trust myself...
besides, i'd have to compete with the 'shroom eating squirrels!
