Pruning the roses


Prune Roses here, Prune Roses there,
Dancing in my garden,
With Sweet William and Fred Astaire.

Wallflower there, Gardenia over here,
My Fuchsia’s looking bright,
I’m going to retire this year.

Working on the Rockery,
and making it a Dahlia routine.
The Hydrangea looks wonderful,
Magnolia’s standing supreme.

Perennials in here, Heather over there,
Talking to my Sunflower,
Petunia’s shrug and stare.

Slug pellets there, Slug pellets here,
Touch my French Marigolds,
and its salt on your tail my dear.

Love to spend the day, working in my garden,
Then relax in the evening sun.
Surveying creation all around me,
With a nice Cuppa and a Currant Bun.
