Blue is the color most pursued by gardeners. Yet blue is a mysterious hue with as many personalities as uses. Blue flowers can be tranquil or melancholy, dark as denim or light as the sky, restful as twilight or restless as the sea. They blur boundaries, suggest distant horizons and make gardens look larger.But above all, blue flowers are sought-after."Blue is always the most popular color because it goes with everything," theorizes garden store owner Kathy Tracey. "And because it seems hard to find."

MOSCOW - When prosecutors here recently threatened to file pornography charges against a post-modernist novelist, the writer accused them of trying to turn Russian society into a "castrated cat." If so, they have set themselves a formidable goal. Russia seems as sexually unrestrained as any nation in the world. During the Soviet era, authorities tried to impose a prudish moral code on their comrades, outlawing sex and nudity in arts and literature. But in the end, they could no more rein in Russian libidos than they could crush the black markets.

Aravind Bhambore and his chef-partner, Neel Kamal, have sky-high aspirations for their small restaurant. Not content with providing the cheap, filling fare you get at many Indian restaurants, they say they want to make their customers feel like Mogul emperors. I'm all for that. With its sky theme and rococo embellishments, the Sky Room is like no other Indian restaurant you've ever seen. I would even go so far as to say it's like no other restaurant, at least as far as decor goes. The room is compact, seating only 55, but is filled with ornate silver tables inlaid with green marble and even more ornate, high-backed, silver chairs, handmade and imported directly from the Pink City of Jaipur in Rajasthan, India.

Though I've always loved the fragrance of hyacinths, I've never known quite how to gracefully plug them into the landscape. They're low and clunky -- like wooden shoes -- and don't go with many things. As a result, I've always used them like outdoor air fresheners, sticking a few here and there around the yard for a periodic whiff of something lovely. Then last year, I discovered camassia (Liliaceae scilloideae), a native bulb also known as Indian hyacinth (or wild hyacinth, camas, Indigo squill, meadow hyacinth and quamash)
