Comes up smelling like roses
- Thom Bodebt
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.

To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music,
it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy,
than to attempt to fully understand.
- Henry T. Tuckerman
As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
