A bit of doggerel

by Julia Line, Head Gardener at The Lock-Up
The colours are loud
- the brighter the better.
They should watch out at Chelsea,
I could be a trend setter.
I just mix and I match,
I don't give a toss.
If it doesn't work out
Who cares?  I'm the boss.
A geranium here,
Two heucheras there.
A hop on a trellace,
A lupin so fair.
It's all muddled up,
Not quite right, but not wrong.
I do love my wee garden
I must write it a song.

What's that flower called - it's white?
Why do some plants hold tight?
Did they say it might rain?
Blast - I must water tonight!
