WHAT IS A GARDENER?
A sower, a grower, a latin name knower
A nurturer, reaper, a tidy lawn keeper
A seeder, a feeder, a determined weeder
A border designer, a seedling aligner
A researcher, a planner, a lawn mower manner
A greenhouse potter, a staker & knotter
A welly wearer & love of fresh airer
A potterer, toiler, a keen top soiler
A harvester, snipper, a log & branch chipper
A landscaper, lopper, a well-equipped chopper
A sprinkler, spader, a plant in the shader
A vicious deadheader & shaper of bedder
A forker, a clearer, a sprayer & shearer
A mulcher, a flowerer, it looks like a showerer
A raker, a hoer, an autumn leaf blower
A composter, wirer, and sometimes bonfirer
A border maintainer, a planter & drainer
A kneeler, a bender, a builder & mender
A slug resister & nature assister
A ground cover lover & old garden glover
That’s what makes a Gardener!
