You can add sage blossoms to the list.  They add color and wonderful flavor
to sauces and salads.

I was always taught that cauliflower is a trick question.  What we eat is
not actually a flower at all, but a proliferation of stem tissue which will
flower eventually (in a second season?).  Can someone set me straight?
