My Gardening Things
Catalogs breeding and seedlings are sprouting
Weeds have arisen and beds are a-calling
Spring has erupted and bitten us all
There’s so much to do here – Hope I’m done by this fall!
Veggies and flowers are begging attention
grass isn’t growing – but it’s worth a mention
planning and plotting a new summer scene
there’s so much to do here – I’m ready to scream!
Pansies to dead head and crocus to divide
shrubs that need trimming and mulches to provide
bugs to be vanquished and compost to turn
there’s so much to do here – must avoid a sun burn!
When the bugs bite
When the weeds thrive
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my gardening things
And then I don’t feel so bad!
words by Talena
If you’re going to have a tune stuck in your head, might as well have words that apply to your life to sing it to. I wish I had Winnie-the-Pooh’s or Frances‘s talent for that. I’m not that immersed in the world of music. Does anyone know other songs that express pleasure in gardening or in being in a garden?
As for that new word I learned, you’ll have to read the comments to this post to find out.
