Ours is a Schubertian household. We have a picture of the poor chap on the piano and the bench is full of lieder. We even have a "Franz Schubert" phlox out in the flower beds, a gift from Mary Lou. This is the only white blossom on the whole plant. All the others are a sort of lavender much like the buds you see behind it. Why is this one white? I don't know. Maybe we should be a bit more of a Mendelian household.
