These ‘Pink Charm’ daffodils in my Las Vegas garden remind me of the garden club ladies: I am in the middle of my talk and they are all watching me. That is broccoli in the background. I have filled the freezer with broccoli—I am up to my ears in broccoli and letting the rest go to flower. I am not going to eat another broccoli until next fall. I am turning green; my house smells like broccoli; I smell like broccoli; Bill smells like broccoli; the chickens are turning green and they smell like broccoli.
Broccoli is very pretty when it flowers. I bring some of the brocolli flowers into the house to mix with cut daffodils—they bloom at the same time in my garden. The “fancy” varieties of daffodils in this bouquet fool people—they can’t guess that they are daffodils. And they never guess that the sprays of tiny yellow flowers next to them are broccoli! Fun. —Leslie Doyle, Las Vegas, Nevada
