Poppies Shpoppies!

Greetings from The Gardener. AKA HWADATFW.

That's He Who Actually Does All The Freakin' Work.

I thought it was a good idea to establish something at the outset of this blog. It's my firm, long-held belief that there is a place for flowers. In someone else's garden.

Poppies? Now you see one:

Now you don't:

That's the only good thing to be said about flowers. They're dispensable.

Hoo-boy! You, sir, have opened one BIG can of worms! I could give you links to foodie blogs with pictures of edible flowers. If you hadn't spat the Howard dummy I could invite you to tea, with edible flowers.
I'm sure there will be others to chide you, so I'll just quote Joan Baez who said(or sang) "Give us bread, but give us roses. Hearts cn starve as well as bodies."

Yes, but Joan Baez also said (or sang): "The moon is hot, the stars are cold. I've been there, thats how I know."

I rest my case.

"If mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy"... sounds like you guys NEED more poppies.

I've seen that poppy - appearing on a blog very near you!

Seen one, seen 'em all.
