Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row....
UNLESS you're a CHICKEN !
Alice and Joanie B., who, like most discerning chickens, love flowers - they are magnifique to eat!
Easter lilies so savory (as most bulb flowers are, except tulips--hmmm candy - Joanie B. likes red the best, Alice favors yellow)...
Annuals - so delicate and sweet - they melt in a chicken's mouth as they shred them to bits...
Pure scrump-tious-ness - the flowers, not the stems and stalks and leaves...as you can see by this photo of Laurenjoan's garden...
What to do, what to do - if you are a flower lover and NOT a chicken? You, being a discerning person who loves flowers, as they are magnifique to look at....what to do?
Why go to your local SCCLD Library - or simply go on line to www.sccl.org and order up a few books and such that will arm you offensively for a beautiful garden, a place to see and enjoy flowers whether in a pot, or in a vase, or in a book, or in a bedtime story...
