We add plants to our gardens for various reasons. We think they're beautiful, they are the right height, the right color, they bloom at the right time. But I add plants to my garden for yet another reason. Their name.
Last fall, I bought some daffodil bulbs only because of their name. My husband's name is Roman, and he goes by Romie, just as his grandfather for whom he was named did. The spelling is a little different - 'Romy' - but that's of no matter.
I bought a Japanese Maple last year at the Cincinnati Flower Show because it was called 'Harp Strings' and I used to play the harp.
