Summary (IBList user synopsis):

In the near future, plants have been bred and/or genetically modified to "sing" via vibration of their calyces. For one shop owner that sells such plants, a strange meeting and later affair with a beautiful golden skinned woman who seems to have a personal resonance with the plants due to her almost unearthly singing voice turns out to be both a blessing and a curse.
