Shakespeare once wrote in his play Romeo and Juliet “A Rose by any other name is still a Rose.” But how difficult would it be to talk about “roses” without the word for it? In this lesson we help to address this by expanding your vocabulary with the names of several flowers in Hindi.

... the party is over ...

by that, I mean summer is over and fall, with it's chilly nights, is triggering the passing of my flower garden.
I don't normally post here but couldn't help myself with having just arranged my last bouquet from an annual flower garden.
I have gleaned and saved flower seeds for nearly 40 years -- cosmos, sunflower, zinnea, love in a mist, poppy, nasturium, aster, snapdragon, calendula, marigold, morning glory and a host of colorful wildflowers.
I have shared my seeds and floral bouquets with friends, neighbors and strangers.

Moon Garden...Wav

Taking plant sugestions for my up-coming moon garden(CNY)....
I already have in mind the following:
1) Queen Anne's Lace
2) Shasta Daisy
3) Wave Petunia
4) Geranium (White)
5) Lambs Ear
6) Moon Flower (Jipsum Weed)
7) Aster
8) ConeFlower (White)
Anyone have annual, or most importantly, perrenial suggestions? Im wide open to ideas. Fall bulbs are a thought aswell.

As Davy Crockett said, "You may all go to

Hell, and I will go to Texas." Lawd, I do miss Texas.
But to stay on the gardening topic, there is a lovely book, Gardening in South Texas, by Renton, Newcomer, and Bates. Out of print.
For August, these are the flowers recommended for starting from seed:
"Aster, Bell of Ireland, Calendula, Candytuft, Canterbury bell (annual only), Cosmos, Delphinium (perennial), Hollyhock, Pansy, Petunia, Snapdragon, Stock, Sweet William, Tithonia (sacred flower of the Incas), Wallflower, and Zinnia." p. 25 And, I am sure, there are many more.
