The conundrum: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “flower/flour.” Use one, use both, it’s totally up to you. Enjoy!”

Flower and/or flour. Which do I identify with? Which do I prefer? Which one “speaks” to me? Neither, I think. This is what I would term a conundrum.
I’m a flower lover; I admire them all the time – in other peoples’ gardens, prettily arranged in a vase in other peoples’ houses – but you will not find any in my garden or home. I’m an avid gardener, but I prefer edible plants and they are not big on flowers. Unless you like eating flowers. Personally, I do not really find flowers palatable. Hibiscus tea? No thank you, Dear. Rose leaf preserves? I’ll pass, but thank you for offering.
Flour. I know this as the substance that goes into bread, cakes and all kinds of lovely things that people love to eat. Another thing you will not find in my home, not because I don’t like the eating part, it’s just that I detest the making and baking part. It’s so much easier to buy a “homemade” cake at the bakery around the corner.
Uhm … so what more can I say about flower/flour? Not much. Nooo … not much.
