Pretty Weeds in a Vase

My daughter is usually not girlie but every now and then, she surprises me. This week it was with these flowers. They grow in the fields around our home and we think of them as weeds. According to my husband, locals call the plant “herbe sainte” or holly grass. If cows eat it, he says it makes their milk bitter. When you get a handful and put them in a vase, they look pretty and last for days.
