Munching on Yucca

I've been enjoying a few types of flowers this spring. Prickly pear has a lovely yellow flower in our area that is a bit slimy, but has a reasonable taste. The beautiful purple cholla flowers have a more enjoyable taste. Definitely my favorite so far is the yucca bloom. A neighbor handed me a 1 gallon bag of yucca he picked from his yard during my morning walk with Sesame. I ate a few and shared them with the others at the dog park. The petals seem to be sweetest near the center and more bitter towards the outside. It is somewhat reminiscent to eating a artichoke.
