The garden should be adorned with roses and lilies, the turnsole, violets, and mandrake.
There you should have parsley, cost, fennel, southern-wood, coriander, sage, savory, hyssop, mint, rue, dittany, smallage, pellitory, lettuces, garden-cress, and peonies.
There should also be beds planted with onions, leeks, garlic, pumpkins and shallots.
The cucumber growing in its lap, the drowsy poppy, the daffodil and brank-ursine ennoble a garden.
Nor are there wanting, if occasion further thee, pottage-herbs, beets, herb-mercury, orache, sorrel and mallows, anise, mustard, white pepper and wormwood do good service to the gardener.

Pluck not the wayside flower,
It is the traveler's dower.

I don't know whether nice people tend to grow roses
or growing roses makes people nice.
- Roland A Beowne
I know of no other genus whose plants flower out-of-doors every day of the year.
I know of no other genus with one or more species coming into bloom or growth, peaking or going dormant at every season.
