Arugula

This flower is from the Arugula plant, Arugula is part of the Mustard Greens Family, it has a spicy peppery taste and is one of my favorite salad greens. It only flowers in the winter after a very cold period. I love these delicate, whimsical flowers. I use it also with pork, chicken and fish dishes, it is wonderful wilted with a sauce. The flowers smell like honey, oh yummmm. I cut them today because guess what? We have sunny skies and 60 degrees plus weather comin right around the corner, Whoooopeeeeee!!!!! Happy Wednesday. Hugs
