Come with me through the prairie garden gate.
Time to gather and harvest some healthy goodness.
Grab a basket, a tote and a bucket, too.
It will be great. Now, don’t be late.
Hand in hand we will begin at half past eight.
Skipping and prancing down the garden path with Oma is such a grand time.
Sweet, colorful flowers all in bloom. We stop to sniff the many lovely, fragrant flowers, and gather a beautiful bouquet.
Snap and snip and cut and pinch. Fill the basket. Fill the bucket. Raspberries, blueberries, tomatoes, onions and lettuce.
Don’t forget some ears of corn to roast and green chives for the herb butter.
As we return with a bountiful harvest, it is time to delight in all we have gathered.
The prairie garden gate is now latched shut and Oma and I will soon return on yet another day.
