  1. Ha! Maybe some of the flowers are edible? You could garnish a nice smoked hunk of meat with the! 😉 Though that might land you in the dog house!

  2. It’s so exciting to see everything coming up in the garden, flowers and all. I have the same feeling as you about the flowers but I think they’re an important attractant for bees. Some flowers are great companions for the veggies, as they deter pesty buggies and slugs! I’m glad to see you’re thawing out up there in Canada 😉
