While at the garden center several weeks ago I over heard a young women talking about some of the vegetable plants and their flowers, "what kind of flowers do these get" she asks. I rolled my eyes and thought silly girl these are vegtables they're not pretty.
I have pretty much given up on flowers in my backyard, the chickens just tear them up. (With the exception of a few around the pond)
As it turns out I'm the silly one. There is beauty in all flowers, you just have to look for it. They may not last long, some only a day...hmmm sound familiar... the Day Lilies that I love so. Chickens love them too. They wiped out a 10 foot row in a day!
