Whoopee-Ti-Aye-Oh ...

I composed this little ditty Monday after spending several very happy and productive hours in the garden for the first time since my appendectomy. With a tip of the cowboy hat (and apologies) to Gene Autry:

I'm back in the garden again
Out where the sun is my friend
Where the monarch pillars feed
On red-orange butterfly weed
Back in the garden again

Roamin' the beds once more
Even tho I'm still a little sore
I can dig and weed and prune

While to my plants I croon
Back in the garden again


Whoopi-ty-aye-oh
Runnin` to and fro
Back in the garden again
Whoopi-ty-aye-yay
I go my way
Back in the garden again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

See if you can spot the tiny monarch caterpillar on this milkweed!

I love your ditty! ( and your garden, mine's still getting going here )

It was great to meet you at Spring Fling last weekend.
