Flowers



Flowers (tulips) in many colors

Episode 37: Flowers

In this podcast we have two songs about flowers and a story called Ruby’s Garden. The first song 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, we can sing 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. Listen to the podcast to find out how she got her garden.

Our last song is one I composed and it’s called “What Grows in your Garden”. It’s like a question and answer—the question is “what grows in your garden?” The answers I use in the song are tulips, squash, weeds and grass! Of course we give you the opportunity to answer the question too!
