"I don't see any flowers"
That's what rude people say when asked not to trample or permit their dog to trample the flowers. Many people know nothing beyond "plant" and "tree" when it comes to recognizing the vegetable world. Anyhow, despite being walked on and broken off and subjected to various forms of animal insult, a handsome coreopsis has persisted through the winter and is now blooming profusely. We're even seeing the return of a few pink evening primroses (many call them buttercups).
