Some people like to talk to their plants. After all, plants are really good listeners. Why not sing to them?

Of course, back in the 60s, some clever researcher opined that plants might actually hear you. He attached electrodes to them, and they got nervous reactions. So you might want to practise a bit first, just in case your nasturtiums have perfect pitch.

Complete these floral song lyrics.

Fill in the blanks.

  1. ____________ coming up roses for you and for me.
  2. Roses are shining in _______, in the hush of the silver dew…
  3. _______ through the tulips with me.
  4. The Yellow Rose of Texas beats the _______ of ___________.
  5. You brought me _______ for my furs, and it was spring…
  6. ________, _________, every morning you greet me, small and white, clean and bright…
