We always grew okra when I was growing up. Never paid any attention to the flowers till last year when I planted some. They are so beautiful I wish they lasted longer. Love it in home made soups or fried. I stumbled across your site by accident but sure happy I did. It is good to know there are folks out there who are down to earth & helping others get back to basics. Thanks for your posts.
