IF you know what you are doing, That's fine, But If not DONT!
Same goes for Mushrooms or any Wild Plants,
You just have to make ONE Mistake and you could be Dead;
And some wild plants the more you cook them the more Deadly they become.

press them and make cards for special occasions??

now if it were Calendula instead, I could use them for lots of other things. From healing wounds to decoration on salads - https://chestnutherbs.com/calendula-sunshine-incarnate-an-edible-and-medicinal-flower/

On the link it say "Herbal Actions: Antiseptic, astringent, diuretic, sedative". The sedative would do me just fine right now.... drunken
