Just How Did My Garden Grow .

Mary , Mary quite contrary
How did my garden grow ?
You know darned well
It's just been hell
With Winter's frost and snow .
Bought expensive seeds
That were colored weeds
That grew and grew some more
So , just like I said
It is wrecking my head
And my green finger is getting sore .
My daffs were a laugh
And my posies can't pose
The buttercups all turned sour.
The ducks in the pond
Are beyond the beyond
And the ivy is poison , for sure .
My frog , Mr. Toad
Took to the road
To meet a Princess
Who is loaded with cash .
I'm sore , sad and sick
Because of Reykjavik
What ain't weeds
Is now covered in ash .

Inspired for Dane-Ann's garden contest .

    Sean, I was looking over a few of your poems that had not won in contests. It's a shame. I think this one not either?? I was reviewing my fav poets list today and didnt' see your name. So here is a fav for you my friend. I am feelling depressed for losing a few contests this week, and thought I 'd try to make SOMEBODY happy. haha. LUv, Andrea

    oh no, do you really have ash at your house? I am so sorry. That is a mess I am sure. I just read some news about stranded travelers and the hotels gouging them with no money left etc.

    Nice, light-hearted write( I hope so anyway ;D If not, just ignore this comment lol) Good luck in the contest with this one. P.S-Your footle entry was awesome....I wasn't sure if you could compound extra footles together, but yours should have been first just for doing so( no disrespect to Mr. Fraser for his great footle). Chris.

    Sean, this is wildly funny!! You had me laughing all the way through. What a great feel you have for "cultivating" humor through your gardening efforts. :) Love, Carolyn
