Relaxing on the Lawn

Now is the time to sit back in the deckchair and enjoy the fruits (or weeds, in my case) of your hard work.

Here are a few rhymes to see you out the door.

Here comes the Sun!

Can't take this - it's sweltering -
dazzling me eyes, scorching me skin,
giving me headaches, doing me in!

So much for blue skies!
I'm going in!

The rest of these assume you're facing up to the heat (or rain).

Touching Base

Lazing in the deckchair,
gazing at the blue,
falling straight to sleep there -
falling straight through!

Garden Sounds

Kids can be noisy;
dogs are worse,
but cars chugging past
are a chug-chug curse.

Let us eat Lettuce

We have thirty-six crunchy lettuces,
for thirty-six lunch and teas!
But the whole lot are rotting
at the rate of knots,
so we're munching through 'em in threes.

More coming soon.

June Jungle

Ah, summer at last! How lovely the garden looks! (At a distance.)


Summer is here -
the shrubs are flowering!

Slugs are here,
deftly devouring.

Courgette Crisis

Is your kitchen spacious?
Long and not too narrow?
Could you do a favour?
Could you take a marrow?

It won't fit in your basket,
and it's far too big to clutch.
I'll wheel it round in the barrow.
Thank you oh, so much!

Celery Stress

Won't you take some celery?
Not a single stick?
A slice or two in a nice beef stew
won't make you feel sick!


Mowing the lawn is relaxing -
really quite a delight,
and lucky that's so,
for as we know,
there ain't no end in sight.


More summery rhymes coming soon.

Happy gardening!
