  10. These are so pretty Aimee! I just love the pastels and the flower petals. They are perfect for spring, but I'll have to wait until summer for flowers in my garden. Thank you for sharing these and your delicious looking blood orange cake and beet and kale chips at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a lovely week! ~Deborah

  12. are all roses edible? i recently got a mini rose bush for my window sill and plan to use the petals in various ways. i was just wondering whether those would be edible also. they have such a beautiful, rich fuchsia color.
