  1. Very pretty! I grew it one year (the rabbits loved it:@) but still haven't cooked with it.

  8. Carol, I didn't realize that you loved so close to the water until I saw your prior post! I hope your house wasn't flooded! We were very lucky as houses two blocks either direction from mine were flooded and they lost their cars. My house didn't even lose power!

    1. Pat, we were very lucky considering our neighbors got flooded in feet. We had a couple inches in our basement, no damage. We lost two cars. No power for 11 days. We are getting back to normal.
