goy joy


By lyd


i found a site that they call goy
its full of pics and blogs full of joy
theres american,australians,welsh and irish
talking about plants,shrubs and the odd iris
the gardens are fab and worth a look
if you dont believe me check out chrispooks
this is just a silly little rhyme to make you smile
to help you get through this wet summertime
i wont give up my day job to be a poet
but i guess that you all no it

Made me laugh too Lyd. I'm not suffering from the cold wet, but it's still good to have a laugh. Our forecast is 32 C today and 34 C tomorrow. Thanks for advertising my garden in your poem.

HEY! What about English and Scots gardens? Now you will have to write another verse, Lyd, 'cos I'm upset! :-(

And........ don't forget the West Country.
We have our own dialect that is exclusive to Bristol
To respond to the poem in Bristolian: 'Its gurt lush!'
(Translation is: 'Its very good')

I reached your poem rather late,
But let me say, I think it's great.

GOY is such a super forum
Plants and trees - we all adore 'em.

A magic mix of pics and posts
Pete, Paul, Ajay - brilliant hosts.

Experts there to help our sowing,
Folk to guide us with our mowing.

Some are staid and some more looney,
All the best from terratoonie.
