A Little ditty

I can't match last year's offering, so this'll have to do  image

With apologies to Sammy Cahn   image

To the tune of  # Let it Snow!

# Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the Forum is so delightful

So if you want things to grow

Have a go! Have a go! Have a go!

If your artichokes look like onions

And your plums have got bumps like bunions

When you can't find the RHS book

Take a look! Take a look! Take a look!

When we finally say goodnight

And we look back at what we've grown

Well  it gives us all such delight

Even though we might curse and moan

Well the sprouts are already simm'ring

And the tree is all decked with trimming  (sorry image )

But if you've nowhere to go

Turn on the Forum - you'll Ho Ho Ho!

'Cos if your roses are drowned in greenfly

And your hellebores look far too dry

If you can't find the cure

Check the Forum - be reassured

Now we can finally say goodnight

And look back at the year we've had

We've had lots of fun and delight

So life really can't be too bad

Oh the weather outside is frightful

And the Forum is so delightful

But though we want plants to grow

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all image


It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Cheers people  image

    Not sure what happened to the spaces between each verse - they were there when I pressed submit image

    I actually started off with :

    # Well the weather outside is s****y

    but I've thought of a little ditty...

    Didn't want to lower the tone though image

    As the greatest comedian of all  (Dave Allen) used to say :Goodnight - and may your God go with you image
