At a time when people worry about every mile their food must travel, why is it okay to import most of our cut flowers from thousands of miles away?
The deal about flowers is the vernal nature of its being. That's why they are used in religious rituals, weddings and funerals. They are beautiful because they die.I'm actually more concern by the use of farm land in poor countries to grow flowers instead of food for the locals.
