Well, ok, can't let you limer on your own.

There once was a gardner called Lestie
Whose weeds in her pots turned her testy
But the Sun made her smile
And forget squatters vile
Flowers and fruits are life at its besty.

Okay - so you made me smile with pleasure, thanks for that ... you and the Sun!

Now here is one for you and another for the Gardeners why not?

Astro-specialist she is, her name's Mona
To our knowledge of heaven, a big donor
See, when it comes to the skies
One just has to surmise
That even E.T. would want to phone her!


...and then

Carrots and Beans and Tomatoes and Squash
Placed on the table as yummy-yum nosh
But unless, while you're cooking
At your pots you are looking
You may land up with tosh. Oh my Gosh!


Cheers now

Though gardening's always been a nice thought,
Sadly a green thumb, I have naught,
Tomatoes and greens
Though they've been a nice dream
It's to market for veggies I've sought.

Very clever Deanna - thanks for joining in, but please, banish that thought of nought when it comes to your green thumb.

Try growing some spinach - that is if you like it. It is surely the easiest thing to put in a pot with sunshine and water it can't help growing. Harvest by cutting away the outer leaves and it will keep on producing from the centre for a long while.

Cheers

Lestie and Deanna, your rhymes have made me smile. Not to mention (but I will) - aw shucks! - my very own limerick.

So I've now been inspired to create a little tale which suggests that revenge is not necessarily a dish best served cold.

There once was a man from Wales
Who had no collards or kales
They were more hole than leaf
And 'twas his belief
They'd gone from the pots to the snails.

But he knew a French lady called Margot
Who was moved to act by his heart's woe –
Bring me garlic and beurre
And a sauté pan, Sir
These snails will soon be escargots.

Definitions to go ...

** Tulips: Dutch kissers

** Garden hose: Socks for gardeners.

** Turnip: What I do with my nose at the lack of Legume in economy class; too Marrow.

Cheers

and another limerick or two ...

Lucy was a keen Gardener latent
For her interest in pots was quite patent
But as everyone knows
A seed planted just grows
As it wishes, and only if you’re patient!


and

There was a sweet gardener called Maisy
Who’s real name was supposed to be Daisy
When called Maisy she’d say
In quite the nicest way
“Why should I care – I’m just not that crazy!”


Cheers for now

Hello there,

A couple more home-made limericks why not?

Someone said to plant lots of fruit in tandem
With flower seeds just scattered at random,
But what they didn’t say
Was there’d come the day
Of harvest. Too much? Well, we canned’em!


and

There was this old gardener while green-thumbing
Who was famous for working, while humming
Songs to his plants green
To make them all keen
To note which way was going, and which coming!


Cheers now
