    This is great!:)

    I love cicerchie, but I had absolutely no idea how to say it in English. I took one home to my parents in London to show it to them, but they didn't have a clue either (and they/we have lived all over the world).:)

    I like blue sweet pea as a name.:)

    I know sweet peas are flowers and I've always liked that name: I'll have to check this one out....:)

    Yep! Here they are: azure blue sweet peas. Definitely edible! (Not the flowers themselves, obviously....)
    Beautiful! Unfortunately mine aren't that azure. I'll try nibbling the flowers. They eat virtually anything that grows out of the ground here! :D
