Peter Cundall is his name, heís on the teleí every week
The garden show at one oíclock, at great gardens you may peek,
He makes it look so easy with all the vedgies that he grows,
Rhubarb and asparagus and all the other things he sows.
He often takes us on a trip to see gardens of great note,
So many types of English trees & about natives he will quote,
From the South coast of Tassieí to the rain forest of the north,
To show us the best of all the gardens he happily takes us forth.
Roses are most peopleís favourite, grown widely across our land
And when a new color is nurtured thereís always great demand,
Petunias are my favourites, flowering right throughout Springtime
And perfume exuded by flowering stocks is really quite sublime.
In Spring & Autumn every year they hold the open garden scheme,
To some itís a great ambition, to some itís just a dream,
People come from miles around and even from Interstate
To see the Macedon Ranges Gardens & of their attributes relate.
When winter sneaks upon us and dark shadows start to creep,
The English trees all drop their leaves & quietly go to sleep,
We batten down the hatches & prepare for winterís cold
And wait anxiously for Spring flowers, more valuable than gold.
The pleasure one gets from a garden is a genuine boost for the soul,
It relaxes the nerves & tension & should be everybodyís goal,
Itís been said and even quite often, right from the time of my birth,
That you are nearer to God in a garden than anywhere else on earth.
