To veer away from the orchids and heavy bright colors i will deviate first from them and post some alternative view.
I still recall our previous discussions about the blue butterfly pea first posted by Autumn Belle, which Kanak and i joined later. First we were fascinated by the bodily part connotation which its scientific name denotes, being Clitoria ternatea! Then i added in Centrosema pubescens on the same note. However, an outstanding thought within those exchanges of discussion is the blue flower of Clitoria ternatea for food or for medicine.
Last week i had the opportunity to taste exactly that flower. We were in an exclusive type of restaurant, and a friend ordered green salad to go with her pesto dish. The blue petals, six in all, are added separately on top, and the arrangement is magnificent. I am sorry folks i forgot my camera at home and failed to show you the elegant arrangement. Nevertheless, i hope you can visualize that green salad predominantly lettuce, topped with individually arranged six blue petals.
