How does your garden grow?

We were in the car on our way to visit a garden which participated in the Australian Open Garden Scheme, when my two grand daughters suddenly started to sing...

How does your garden grow?


The very first think that a garden needs is a hoe for pulling weeds,
So here we go a hoeing o hoeing the garden to make it grow.


A spade comes next for digging the earth
So here we go a digging o digging the garden to make it grow.



Put down the spade pick up the rake, rake it smooth like a crumbly cake,
Her we go a raking o raking the garden to make it grow.


It’s time to scatter some seeds around
So here we go a sowing o sowing to make the garden grow.




We think those seeds are thirsty so better we give them an nice cold drink,
So here we go a watering o watering the garden to make it grow.



We had a great time looking at a beautiful garden.





Hope you had a nice time too, thank you for your visit.

I read Making Gardens about the National Gardens Scheme in G.B. - didn't realize that there were others - too many wonderful gardens, not enough time. Thanks for sharing your and your granddaughters' garden adventure.

Darla said...

A lovely post. I enjoyed reading the poetry as well as gazing at all the beautiful photos, and ending with the children was a delight. Thanks so much for visiting me a little while ago.

Thanks for stopping by Titania. I have been missing out on my garden and garden bloggers but hope to share at least one post on gardens in Hawaii. Also the Skywatch....never able to remember until it's too late!

Ich habe mir gerade vorgestellt zu welcher Melodie dieses Lied passen würde. Aber ich habe keines gefunden, dass ich dabei verwenden könnte ...des Rhythmus wegen. Deine Enkelkinder sind ja "härzig"! Und dass sie dich schon bei Gartenbesichtigungen begleiten lässt ja auf einen zukünftigen grünen Daumen schliessen ;-) !! Wie schön! Sicherlich hast du auch Bilder des besuchten Gartens gemacht (bi äbe e Gwunderigi!)....
Es liebs Grüessli, Barbara

Liebe Barbara, dieses Jahr habe ich 4 Gaerten besichtigt und habe die Camera gar nicht mitgenommen. Alle waren fantastisch und interessant. Naechstes Jahr kommt sie sie dann mit. Die Kinder haben eine einfache Melodie dazu gesungen. Aber ich hab sie gar nicht mehr im Ohr. Ich kann Raphaelle fragen ob sie mir die Noten aufschreibt. Sie lernt Klavier seit sie 5 ist. Diese Photo ist etwa zwei Jahre alt.

I can just imagine you enjoying your little granddaughters' song as you drove to see the garden.
A memory to cherish :)
I love the photos of your spring garden, and those little girls are adorable.
