In an English Country Garden...

    How many gentle flowers grow
    In an English country garden?
    I'll tell you now of some I know
    And those I'll miss I hope you'll pardon
    Daffodils, heart's ease and flox
    Meadowsweet and lilly stalks
    Gentain, lupine and tall hollihocks
    Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, forget-me-nots
    In an English country garden.

    How many insects find their home
    In an English country garden?
    I'll tell you now of some I know
    Those I miss I hope you'll pardon
    Dragonflies, moths and bees
    Spiders falling from the trees
    Butterflies sway in the mild gentle breeze
    There are hedgehogs that roam
    And little gnomes
    In an English country garden.

    How many songbirds make their nests
    In an English country garden?
    I'll tell you now of some I know
    Those I miss I hope you'll pardon
    Bobolink, coo cooing doves
    Blacbirds and the whirlwind thrush
    Bluebird, lark, pigeon, nightingale
    We all smile in the spring
    When the birds all start to sing
    In an English country garden.

    Robin, don't forget the Robin.

      The mix of colors is so beautiful. I had these flowers in pots outside this summer but only in purple...that was the only color that was sold!
