Oh darn—too late for valentine’s Day



This beef bouquet, as with much of the botanical-related weirdness I find on the interwebs, comes courtesy of Neatorama.com (first sighting) and  hungeree.com (original).

Joking aside, these flowers are better value and much more useful (if you’re a carnivore) than the sadly short-lived and near-odorless red roses that were sold by the gazillions Tuesday.

Elizabeth Licata has been a regular writer for  Garden Rant since 2007, after contributing a guest rant about the overuse of American flags in front gardens. She lives and gardens in Buffalo, N.Y., which, far from the frozen wasteland many assume it to be, is a lush paradise of gardens, historic architecture, galleries, museums, theaters, and fun. As editor of Buffalo Spree magazine,  Licata helps keep Western New Yorkers apprised about what is happening in their region. She is also a freelance writer and art curator, who’s been published in Fine Gardening, Horticulture, ArtNews, Art in America, the Village Voice, and many other publications. She does regular radio segments for the local NPR affiliate, WBFO.

Licata is involved with Garden Walk Buffalo, the largest free garden tour in the US and possibly the world, and has written the text for a book about Garden Walk. She has also written and edited several art-related books. Contact Elizabeth: ealicata at yahoo.com


  1. Noadi, I think you have come up with a great marketing idea for bacon. Bacon roses as a center peice for the breakfast table. Everyone select their own rose to fry. My hysband would love that.
