A walk in the garden

When walking around public gardens or in someone's private garden, I often say to a plant, "I used to know your name, but alas I have forgotten it".

I should carry with me the list I compiled in 1987 of almost all plants in our garden in our semi-detached in East Malvern. I came across it the other day. Some of it is accurate, some of it is not. I might add, it was a quite nice garden.
