Faerie names of flowers
I was over at Blackswamp Girl's blog, A Study in Conrasts earlier today, where she talks about the names of her plants, and how well they all fit together as a theme. It got me wondering about my own plants, if indeed I also choose plants by their names to suit a certain theme.
My roses include "Blythe Spirit" "Celestial" "Dark Lady" "Mirthful" "Scintillation" and "Teasing Georgia".
For this year, I bought seeds of viola "Sweeties" and a flower mix called "Fairy Mix" I have a runner bean called "White Lady", swiss chard "Bright Lights" and radish "Rainbow mixed"
I'm thinking, these could be the names of faeries that inhabit my garden. It seems colorful and light. Slightly naughty and playful. Could it be that we as gardeners choose plants by certain names to suit our personalities?
Am I slightly naughty??? *giggle*
