Notes:

Hello! I bought these flowers a week ago, they came in purple and white – I’ve planted most in my garden but they have a great herby smell, so I put one in with my herbs (we’ve got dogs and I try to keep the herbs indoors as my family doesn’t want ‘doggified’ herbs in our food. Sigh.) and it’s flowering nicely. They’re sweet to look at, these flowers, but they also smell nice, almost like sweet basil. Please let me know if you recognise it and if it’s edible! Hugs and smiles 🙂

    I agree, Looks like sweet Alyssum. This flowers are edible, but doesn’t really taste like anything. Pretty as garnish. http://harvestsgardeningsecrets.blogspot.com/2006/06/sweet-alyssum.html
