My wild and wonderful garden
My overgrown garden neglected it is not,
Nature is left to grow and get on with it's lot.
My garden left to do it's own thing is a very healthy space,
The protection given by the sun to the soil is just ace.
Wildlife thrives on what is perceived as a mess
Weeds are great for pollinations,long grass beetles bless.
My thoughts are uplifted by even the most sluggish of weeds,
I fill all the gaps by planting the most sensuous of seeds.
My overgrown garden is not a neglected one,
In it butterflies land and hedgehogs run.
My trees branch out and produce fresh air,
And generously spread their goodness ,for us all to share.
Weeds play a key role in producing a fertile soil,
And their roots stabilise a secure life in their toil.
Weeds with long stems draw up nutrients deeply set in the ground,
Cleverly when destroyed will re-emerge and to the surface rebound.
