Basically, we like to toss some flowers and leaves in a jar, let it sit in the sun for awhile, and drink it. We love our backyard tea flower water. Well, some like gathering the plant goodness more than they like drinking it, but that's just fine, too. :)
Our favorite leaves for backyard tea: nettle, raspberry and strawberry leaves, any mints, clover, lemon balm
Our favorite edible flowers for backyard tea: violets, clovers, rose petals (and rosehips), cherry and plum blossoms, apple and pear blossoms, lilac, pineapple weed, elderflower, creeping charlie (ground ivy), columbine, calendula, snapdragon, pansies, hibiscus, red sumac berries
Other edible flowers we like: day lilies (NOT other lilies), nasturtium, chives, squash blossoms, marigold, dandelion
There are so many more possibilities: cultivated and/or medicinal herbs, citrus fruit blossoms, roots, and wild edibles common to where you live. Of course, always be sure that you can positively identify edibles in your yard and in the wild before consuming.

Other goodness around the yard:
wood pile, laundry line, solar panels
under the deck
'Featherfoot' in the 'sand box'
Carly and some hens, all named 'Rainbow'
journal writing in a tree
Sylvia with one of the 'Disco Chickens'
That'll do. Wishing you lots of goodness in your backyard.
