Winning in Boston Garden used to be easy for the Celtics and tough for the Houston Rockets. Not anymore. The Celtics tied a 45-year-old team record with their sixth straight home loss, 94-84, last night. The Rockets, behind Hakeem Olajuwon's 37 points, broke a 12-year winless streak at the Garden. "The leprechaun took the year off," Boston's Xavier McDaniel said, referring to the Celtics' symbol on the Garden court. "I guess he's on vacation. " The Celtics, who lost six or fewer home games in eight of the past 14 seasons, dropped to 7-10 at home this season.

Fruit with chocolate, crudites, shrimp scampi, champagne and Dixieland music were served up at the Dunwoody Village and Home garden party last Thursday in Newtown Square. As many as 150 residents, guests and friends enjoyed the yearly event, "a sort of farewell, because a lot of residents go to summer homes in New Hampshire and Vermont," said Robert Domagalski, president of the life-care facility. "It's one of the most popular events that we have. " Al Leopold's Dixieland Band played old favorites, recognized by many of the residents.

For the Flyers, wrapping up the best-of-seven Patrick Division semifinal series against the Rangers tonight at Madison Square Garden, instead of winning it at the Spectrum, has a lot of appeal. For one thing, it might be easier. The Flyers have won 10 of their last 13 at the Garden. In the Spectrum, they are 8-7-1 over their last 16. And of course, anybody would rather win in six then have to come back to the Spectrum for a must-win seventh game Saturday. But the biggest reason might be the Rangers' fans.

Leete Keefer, the president of the Men's Garden Club of Delaware Valley, stood in a quiet corner of Wynnewood Valley Park, microphone in hand. To his left, nestled into the sloping ground before a copse of cherry trees, was the club's Garden for the Blind - a three-leveled, terraced planting of shrubs, flowers and aromatic herbs. To his right was a 6-foot-tall Korean dogwood tree, freshly planted in memory of the five garden club members who died during the last year. "Would anyone like to say a few words?"

To a motorist passing by the Moorestown home of real estate developer Thomas Whitesell Saturday, it might have appeared that gangsters were trying to strong-arm funds from the county's top business and community leaders. And, in effect, he or she would have been right. Nearly $10,000 was handed over by about 200 guests - some in Roaring Twenties garb - who attended the Burlington County College Foundation's second annual garden party to raise money for scholarships and cultural events at the college.

Skirmish Hill homeowner Bobbie O'Dell of Birmingham Township went out of her way to give the 100 or so guests at her garden party that summer feel. Before the guests arrived Sept. 8, she removed all the early autumn leaves that had come to rest on the surface of her lily pond. The party, sponsored by the American Gold Cup Committee and the Philadelphia Friends of the Seeing Eye, honored Chadds Ford resident George A. "Frolic" Weymouth. Committee member Leonard King of Newtown Square gave a tribute to Weymouth, who attended.

Hayward Ford battled during the heat wave to keep the goldfish and koi alive in his community garden's steamy ponds, freezing pots of water in his refrigerator and carrying the ice to the plots at 49th and Aspen streets. But after state-imposed watering restrictions began, the garden's vegetables were on their own. And they were burning up. "My collard greens' bottom leaves have died. My tomato bushes were burnt," Ford, who oversees the 43-plot garden, complained recently.

Everything about the colonial garden party was colonial - except for the two-inch-long hoagies. But that was the only modern touch at the recent Saturday night event in the formal garden outside the Hope Lodge, a state historic site in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County. The stately, red-brick Hope Lodge, known as one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Pennsylvania, is trying to become a better-known landmark. As she watched approvingly while two dancers stepped through an elegant minuet, Brenda Reigle, the historic-site administrator, said that the purpose of the evening was "so people will know that Hope Lodge exists - that we are here and people can come to see the museum.

Dear Folks: When our Buckingham Palace gate passes arrived, they were, to tell the truth, just a little bit of a letdown - a couple of bright orange squares of paper telling us when to show up, what to wear, and to leave the Nikon at home. But I'm not complaining. These were our tickets to the hottest social event of the summer in London - the queen's garden party! We were being specially invited to have tea with the queen and hang out with her for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon in her big old back garden at Buckingham Palace.

The smell of herbs filled the portico, rich and restorative. The surrounding grounds, intensely green in a light spring rain, seemed nearly to gleam with the spirit of revival. At Fort Washington's grand Highlands estate, the annual herb sale and garden party went beyond mere festival and fund-raising yesterday, becoming - with help from supporters from as far as Virginia - an occasion of celebration and renewal. Part of the reason was the 20th anniversary of the Highlands Historical Society, the nonprofit organization that maintains the 44-acre estate, its 1790s mansion and the provocative collection of stone outbuildings and walls.

BROADWAY is filled with comedies, musicals and operas. For the Flyers, though, it's been all horror shows. It's been more than three Wicked years since the Flyers walked out of Madison Square Garden with a win. For the record, the last victory was Feb. 20, 2011. For context, please note that Darroll Powe assisted on Dan Carcillo's game-winning goal and Brian Boucher was in net. Mamma Mia! It's easy to see why the Flyers get a little thorn in their sides whenever they have to pack for Manhattan.

In a tent outside the Camden Children's Garden, brightly painted fence posts with portraits of children lie waiting to be assembled and erected around a garden of ripe fruits and vegetables. The scene is a vibrant, 400-square-foot self-portrait of a city often cast in shades of gray, and one that the Children's Garden is eager to showcase at the Philadelphia Flower Show, running from Saturday through March 9. The garden, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, will mark its 17th appearance at the Flower Show and first since the state attempted to evict the group from its waterfront home last spring.

NEW YORK - Sean Couturier skated toward the net on a mission. With the puck already inside - a helpless and deflated Ray Emery sprawled out to his right - Couturier shattered his stick over the cross bar in frustration. Gone was the Flyers' streak of 26 consecutive cleanly killed penalties. Long gone was the Flyers' entire weekend by that point - the Rangers' power-play goal that made it 4-0 was simply salt rubbed in a wound that was 10 goals deep in just 88 minutes and 45 seconds of action.

Setup: Game 7, 1982 Eastern Conference finals, Boston Garden. The series, which the Sixers led three games to one, is now knotted at three. History is not on the Sixers' side, especially in Boston. ATHLETES WILL tell you they need a chip on their shoulder to motivate them. The Sixers entered Boston Garden on May 23, 1982, with a chip on their shoulder the size of Devils Tower. The fans didn't believe they could win. A member of the media went so far as to question why the Sixers were going to Boston at all, figuring doom was predestined.

DEAR ABBY: For the last eight years, I have been the mother of a star in our local high school. When one of my boys would graduate, the next would take over and be even more athletic or musically talented - and in my youngest son's case, both. Now that they are gone, sporting events make me sad and my husband depressed. I can't stand hearing other parents talk about their children's accomplishments. I also can't stop myself from making some comment about how my sons were better.

MUSIC   Hooks Galore San Diego-spawned singer-songwriter Greg Laswell serves a poppy, propellant, piano-centric sound that echoes dramatically down the ear canals. His 2012 "Landline" album has been winning favorable comparisons to Coldplay and Radiohead at their most anthemic. Having notable female counterparts like Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson serving sirenlike backup parts has also perked up interest. Another album guest, Elizabeth Ziman, is Laswell's current tour opener with her band the Catapult.
