If ever you have the opportunity, read "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint Exupery. There is no plant in the name, but the whole story is about a rose. At first the book seems trite, but after some thought you will understand why it's often used in philosophy classes. What seems to be a children's book is a very thought provoking read. BTW it is a short book & can be read in one or two sittings. I have read it at least 20 times & I get more out of it each time. I think you can guess it's my favorite book. ;o)

I will accept Flowers for Algernon if you will take the song Oh Sweet Pea (won't you dance with me) I think that is how it goes.

How about the song "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" It was an old song I believe popular in the 1920's and revived by Tiny Tim singing it on the Johnny Carson Show! Everyone remember? LOL Also one of my favorite books is "Sleeping With A Sunflower". Right now I can"t locate it to give you the author's name but believe she also wrote "Tomatoes Like Garlic".........right this minute I'm not sure about that.

I enjoyed the 'Shy Tulip Murders' by Rebecca Rothenberg. I bought it just for the name, off a dicount table.
