The garden in need / A job taken to hand
To dig and to prune / To restore it once more
We plant the seed / With a lovers hand
Neath a shining moon / We wait in store
With shovel and spade / To take on the task
Soil removed and taken away / Plants prepared with tender care
Where to plant a choice is made / To get a result is all we ask
Attention given day by day / Perfume and colour our bountiful fare
A garden in bloom / The result of our sweat
We look out with pride / For all to see
Flowers to enhance every room / A scene well met
A joy to come and sit beside / A place of joy it is for me
