A seasonal message

May your gardens flourish,
Every seed germinate,
Rain fall, but not too much;
Roses never suffer from blackspot,
Your tomatoes be blight free.

Colour always be in your garden;
Hostas never nibbled,
Rudbeckias shine as bright as the sun,
Irises as blue as the summer sky.
Summers warm and autumns mild
Tulips bright as jewels;
May the coming year be good for you
And healthy for you and yours;
Spring will be with us soon!

Season's Greetings from the Inelegant Gardener.
