Gardening: Please don't eat the daisies

Okay, Dear Hubby and I went to rescue the black-eyed susans and daisies after a big rain storm. The boys decided to help us by eating the flowers. Now I know where that song came from.

Even Monty is trying to eat the Black-eyed susans.

Look what a mess. The flowers are about 5 feet tall but splayed out very unladylike.

Look at how sad the daisies and dahlias look. The daisies are crushing the dahlias.

Okay, I need to dead head but hey, don't they look fantastic.

So I was wondering what to do with all the beautiful daisies after we straightened all the girls upright again.

I decided to cut a bunch of them and put them by the front door. My new $1 yard sale sign. The front looks like summer.

A closer look.

Okay, I think I need to keep cutting all summer. If I had enough nerve, I would fill up my daughter's boots and stuff flowers in there too.
