You say “toe-may-toe” and I say “toe-mah-toe”.
That’s what the song says.
I remember my grandmother pronouncing “bouquet” as “bow-kay”.
Other people said “boo-kay”.
How to confuse a kid!
Here’s an Eighth of July bow-boo-kay for you.
Daylily. Hemerocallis. Each flower lasts but a day. Edible. Pretty in salads.
Black-eyed Susan. More names include brown-eyed Susan, brown Betty, gloriosa daisy, golden Jerusalem, Poorland daisy, yellow daisy, and yellow ox-eye daisy.
Green-eyed sunflower. Yes, it really is this color!
Colicroot. Not a common flower. Rejoice when you see it. Leave it alone, for others to enjoy with their eyes.
Sheep Laurel. Allelopathic…the plant exudes chemicals that discourage the growth of other plants. Poisonous to sheep and livestock.
“Bleu de Solaize” leek flowers.
Wee single marigolds.
Sunflower bud. Pretty darn hairy.
Hydrangea. My grandmother’s old place was about to be torn down, and the plantings were going to go, too. so I dug this one up, and brought it home. You could make a rug with this photo. Martha Stewart would like one, please.
