I'm Dreaming of a Green Garden!

"Dream Garden" by Maxfield Parrish
You know you have the gardening itch when you start making up songs about your garden in the shower!  The blizzard hit New England last night and mostly missed us.  Still, the near miss of being buried in snow got me really longing for the days of gardening.  My broccoli are still in the garden and hopefully wintering over for Spring.   The heirloom seeds I orderered have already arrived in the mail.  Almost daily, the mailman brings me reminders through gardening catalogs and seed order forms (including the penny sale again!).  Oh, to be out in the garden!  So I share my song that I was singing to myself this morning.
I'm dreaming of a green garden,
 Just like the one I used to grow
Where the veggies glisten
And children pick them
I can't wait for gardens to grow!


  1. I'm excited for your gardening season to start too and so looking forward to all the tidbits and lessons you'll have to share with us. Love the song!

    1. We'll have to do a veggie swap this Summer. : )

  2. Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week; I hope you’ll join us again!

  3. Love your version of the song much better than the original! I can't wait until spring either... And - there's snow in the forecast this week :( I guess I'll just have to keep dreaming!

    1. Thanks Rebecca! Very soon we'll be digging in the dirt with warmer days. Very soon. :)
