I like Lilacs too. They don't grow well in the Bay...I think they like cold winters.

I love them. When I was growing up there was a huge lilac bush outside my bedroom, every spring with the windows open the fragrance would just drift thru the house. I planted one outside of my daughters bedroom window and it was huge, then my son-in-law decided to cut it back....unfortunately he ended up killing my 25 year old bush. sad



The same son-in-law also cut down my rose of sharon bush that someone gave me a start off of her grandmothers plant. sad


I told him to stop cutting my plants and start cutting the weeds. biggrin

I envy you having a lilac bush outside your window but cutting it back and 'killing' it...argh!

The fuck all y'all flower. It's a useful plant in certain circumstances and good to have around at all times, in case the need arises. It self-seeds and it's no fuss at all. It shows up in the spring and if you leave a few of the seedlings, round about August, here's what you get. And, oh, of course, oceans of violets.

The Elephant Head Amaranth - Amaranthus gangeticus (amaranth meaning 'everlasting' in Greek) was brought to the USA from Germany in the 1800’s and got its name because of the huge flower heads resembling an elephant’s trunk. But what is most special about this plant is that you can eat its leaves and seeds:

'Amaranth (Amaranthus) was an important staple crop in pre-Columbian Mexico and South-America, but is also widely used in other parts of the world. It is not a true grain, but a pseudo-grain, related to common pigweed. There are 60 species of Amaranth, of which three species (Amaranthus cruenus, Amaranthus hypochondriacus and Amaranthus caudatus) are commonly grown for their edible seeds. They are still cultivated in Mexico, Guatemala and Peru, but have also become a food crop in many areas, such as China, India, Nepal, Thailand and Nigeria. In lowland Asia and Africa amaranth is also consumed as a leafy vegetable. Amaranth seeds are small and yellow or light brown in colour. They have a high protein content (around 13-14%) and are gluten free, unlike many cereal grains. Amaranth seeds can be popped or puffed, milled into flour or made into flakes.'

It's not my garden. I snagged the photos off the internet. My tomatoes aren't quite ready yet and the amaranth hasn't flowered, either. Can hardly wait though.

I heart all flowers.

I especially love impatiens in my flower garden.

They bloom all summer.

White peonies. I love all peonies, but it seems like nature puts her efforts into either color or fragrance with them - you can't have both. The white ones aren't as showy as some of the pinks, but their scent is what I imagine heaven smells like.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
