Flowers

A new podcast about flowers with two songs about flowers and a story called Ruby’s Garden. The first song that Jodi sings for us is called Lavender’s Blue. This is a really well-known nursery rhyme, so you might find it easy to sing along. As I often do with songs, we change things and add different words – so instead of lavender’s blue and lavender’s green, Jodi sings about poppies, daisies and even bluebells which is quite funny – bluebells are blue, bluebells are green. The song ends giving the listener a chance to choose a flower to put in the song. Don’t worry; if you can’t think of one, I give you some ideas in the podcast.

In our story, Ruby still manages to have a tiny garden even though she lives in a tall apartment building. If you listen to the podcast you can find out how she got her garden.

Our last song is one I composed and it’s called “What Grows in your Garden.” Anneliese and I sing it together. It’s like a question and answer – Anneliese asks what grows in your garden? I sing the answer, such as tulips, squash, weeds and grass! Of course we give you the opportunity to answer the question too!
