In a way, the synthetic mind-altering product known as spice is the new thing, a legal, mind-altering substance that's easily accessible to people younger than the legal drinking age. In another way, it's nothing more than the latest in a line of such cheap, legal highs. The list actually is fairly and includes spray paint - especially gold spray paint - model glue, paint thinner, certain over-the-counter medications and an assortment of plant products such as morning glory seeds (yes, the flower)

When someone says geranium, what do you see?It's probably big globes of lipstick-red flowers, green leaves with scalloped edges on a plant rising 1 foot from a clay pot. That's a geranium.But so is this: a low-growing, sprawling plant with small flowers of just five petals that are white, pink, blue or lavender, growing in a flower garden.The potted plant is officially named pelargonium and commonly called geranium. It blooms all summer, but does not usually survive winters. It's an annual.

Last month's blizzard inspired McCarroll Nole of Baltimore to attend the annual show on Sunday for the first time. "We are tired of the white stuff. We want to see some green. We want to see something come out of the ground," said Nole, who brought a camera with him to record ideas for sprucing up his flower garden.

Q. We just moved to an older home out in the county that has a septic system with grass planted over it. My brother suggested I plant willow trees to suck up water in the drainage field. I'd rather plant a perennial flower garden. Is it OK to grow anything other than grass in this area? A. Brother does not know best in this case. The roots from any large tree can damage the underground parts of your septic system. Don't plant anything if there is a foul odor emanating from your drainage field or if it stays excessively wet. These are symptoms of a malfunctioning system.

Can I grow corn in a backyard vegetable garden? You sure can. Corn pollen is spread by wind, so you'll get the best kernel production by planting corn in blocks of rows. You'll need at least three or four short rows, 2 to 3 feet apart. Sow seeds every 9 to 12 inches in the row after danger of frost has passed and soil is warm. Corn is a "heavy feeder." Fertilize when plants are 12 to 18 inches high and again when tassels appear. Do not remove suckers; they improve yield. Expect 10 to 20 ears per 10-foot row. I want to add some natives to my flower garden.

BEIJING -- Nov. 15 is Li Xiulan's favorite day of the year - even better than her birthday. It's the day they turn the heat on. Winter weather has arrived here, with temperatures dropping into the high 30s on some nights. But Li's home in the 500-unit Flower Garden Apartments in a northern suburb of the capital has provided scant refuge from the growing chill. Instead, Li and an estimated 200 million of China's poor are forced to shiver as they mark off the days until Nov. 15 arrives.

Like a wrinkle in time, Susan Hight Rountree's elegant table settings and imaginative flower arrangements seem to come straight out of the 18th century. But they couldn't have. "A typical 18th-century table would have been covered with food -- there would be no room for flowers," says Rountree, a designer, whose book, From a Colonial Garden (Colonial Williamsburg, 2004, $24.95), brings elements of Colonial American gardens into the 21st century -- not just in the garden, but also indoors, on tabletops and mantles.
