Arlene’s Favourite Gardening Poem!


Taken from the 2003 Prairie Garden Booklet
When I first read this poem in the 2003 Prairie Garden Booklet, I laughed myself silly as I could so relate!  It’s called My Wife The Gardener. Jensen’s carries the Praire Garden!

She dug the plot on Monday
The soil was rich and fine
She forgot to thaw out dinner
So we went out to dine.

She planted roses Tuesday
She says they are a must
They really are quite lovely
But she forgot to dust.

On Wednesday it was daisies
They opened with the sun
All white and pinks and yellows
But the laundry wasn’t done.

The poppies came on Thursday
A bright and cheery red
I guess she really was engrossed,
but, never made the bed.

It was Dahlias on Friday
In colours she adores
It never bothered her at all
All the crumbs upon the floors

I hired a maid on Saturday
My week was now complete
My wife can garden all she wants
The house will still be neat.

It’s nearly lunchtime Sunday
And, I can’t find the maid
Oh no!  I don’t believe it
She’s out there with a spade!!!
