I grace your bed,
all rosettes, ruffles
some find me bitter -
I say taste and see
and offer a tip:
it's all in the way

This is linked with Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Wednesday Challenge - The Language of Flowers - "turn to flowers for inspiration, not simply as beautiful objects, but as symbols of deeper emotions and human qualities, or as magical ingredients".
I was intrigued recently to find the hardworking Kale sold next to fancy roses and other such flowers. I did plant this in my garden along the border a few years back - as I thought them beautiful, but found them bitter to eat. Since then, I have learned how to cook with it.
