Rifling through science and nature books, I stumble upon a reminder.
A field of violets awaits.
A bit of egg white, a spoonful of sugar, and we taste test the dainty flower.
A petal, gingerly, at first.
Then the whole glittery thing shoved in greedy mouth.
A rush of children head outdoors for more of the yummy delicacy.
And I am left to wonder. Which is sweeter? The flower or the sugar?
