Sunflower weeds are out and about on the road sides and medians, and in the in the flower case at the grocery store. While we were moving, and cleaning out, and everything, I made sure one day to stop on the side of the road and cut some flowers with my pocket knife. Both kids were crying and ready to get home, but I didn't want to miss my flowers before they wilted. Was I allowed to pick flowers from UDOT land? I don't know, but my son and I sure enjoyed them the few days they were on our table.
