365 Bristol day 308

Today a photo of a plant that takes me right back to my childhood on the outskirts of Bristol.

This is Aubretia and soon it will form cascading blue carpets of flowers on walls and plant pots throughout the UK. I see it far less in the Netherlands but wonder if it’s edible or not. It is a member of the Brassica family, which are generally edible plants. I’m going to try a flower or two when they form this spring. It could be a useful plant, if it is edible. It I’d already known to provide excellent ground cover and grows quite easily.
