Actually now that it is confirmed that the bouquet was for Bo's gastronomic as opposed to asthetic pleasure, my botantist training has suddenly chimed in with what was troubling me about the bouquet; it didn't look all that safe to eat. The orange flowers are no problem, since they are most likey either daisies of some sort or French/Mexican marigolds; both perfectly edible (Given that Bo describes them as "zesty" my money is on marigolds, as those are very flavorful (they're used in cooking in parts of Europe and Mexico); dasies are basically tasteless. Ditto the roses, they are also (barring thorns) fine for animals to eat (though those rolled up ones tend to be sort of tasteless (and scentless) the kind most people use for consuption (as teas, or rosewater) is the old dogrose with the 4 flat petals) It's the greenery that worries me, most of the plants used by florists for things like those pointy leaves on the edges of the bouquet are actually pretty poisionous, to humans OR animals. A part of me sort of know that Hansel knows Bo well enough that he would make sure to bring an all edible bouqet (maybe those pointy leaves are bay laurel) but at first sight you can see where I'd have some concern.
