With their vibrant, candy-colored hues and fresh fragrance, blossoms are Mother Nature’s way of showing off her unrivaled capacity to delight the senses. And in the case of edible floral varieties, the idea extends to taste. Grow your own nasturtiums, pansies, and lavender to dress up desserts, or find edible blooms among the fresh herbs at upscale grocers and co-ops. Twin Cities–based Dehn’s Garden and Iowa’s Mariposa Farms are two local growers. • dehnsgarden.com; mariposafarms.com
