|Million bells or Calibrachoa 'Cali Star Pink''|
"M" is for the million bells she gave me.
|Hosta 'Queen of the Sea'|
"O" means she's original and likes her foliage bold.
|Hosta 'Tears of Joy," a miniature|
"T" is for the tears when she first saw me
|Bleeding Heart or|
Dicentra spectrabilis 'Gold Heart'
"H" is for her heart of purest gold.
|Blue-eyed grass or Sisyrinchium angustifolium 'Lucerne'|
"E" is for her eyes, with love light beaming.
|Rosa 'Wisley 2008,' a David Austin rose|

Put them all together they spell
A word that means the world -- and the garden -- to me.
(With apologies to poet Howard Johnson)
