Good Enough to Eat

I have heard of rose flavoured chocolate and sugar frosted violets, but these floral fancies at 
 Jane Packer’s stand at the Hampton Court flower show really are the icing on the cake. I almost expect to see a sleepy dormouse climbing out of the flowery teapot and the Madhatter tucking in to a slice of fat roses.

It is strange, but my mouth knows what a pink rose would taste like, and the exact sweetness of a hydrangea.

Pink union jacks, floral teapot, petal cakes; this is a tea party I dream of being invited to.
