Packets Full of Promise
Where have all the flowers gone? Seriously, where did they go?
They’re not in the garden, it would seem. The number of households growing flowers has dropped for three years straight, according to research from the National Gardening Association.
It would be nice to think that we’ve torn up all our flower beds to raise black oxheart tomatoes and red warty thing squash. (O.K., maybe not so nice.)
