Hi di hi
Get on those gardening shoes, the garden is calling!
My Dad used to quote this poem.
Der spring is sprung
Der grass is riz
I wonder where dem boidies is?
Der little boids is on der wing,
Ain't dat absoid?
Der little wings is on de boid!
I always wondered where it came from, a chat with Mr Google gave me this answer:
In Arnold Silcock's Verse and Worse, it is attributed to ANON [New York]
We’ve been here nearly two years but we still keep finding surprises in the garden. Last summer we lost a large tree with the drought. It seems it was hiding this Camellia which we have just discovered. I love this one with its soft crumpled inner petals like a ballerina’s tutu. This one holds well when picked. Doesn’t go all yucky and brown too quick.
………and look the Bumble bees are bumbling!
I didn’t know until just recently that our cuzzie bros across the Tasman don’t have Bumble Bees. So Aussies please enjoy.
Have you ever touched a Bumble Bee? Wait until they are busy doing what bees do then give them a gentle stroke. They won’t mind and you’ll love it!
Thanks for attending this nature study lesson.
