The Toasting Buzzing Nasturtium Flower

Several years ago my gardening wife brought in the first two nasturtium flowers she had grown. She said they were for us to eat right now. Nasturtium really set off a fancy salad and make it even fancier. We toasted the flowers then popped them into our mouths. I was chewing away. That’s when I noticed my nasturtium was buzzing. I spit it on the floor- fast. Then I stepped on it. I felt so bad for the bee. It didn’t ask for a ride into my mouth but that’s what it got. I also felt very lucky I didn’t get stung. I still eat nasturtium. I just check them for bees first.
