I remember, I remember The garden at my grandma's house, Where honesty and nettles grew With ferns, rhubarb and the odd mouse!
I remember, I remember Goldenrod and Solomon seal; The nettles where my brother fell Then smeared with calamine, to heal.
My mum remembers the garden As a pleasant place to play Fish, newts and frogs swam in the pond, Her dad's shed as a hideaway.
She remembers, she remembers Rabbits and chickens roaming free, 'Til the potatoes were lifted Then skinned and eaten for tea!
She remembers, I remember London Pride, and a rambling rose; Marguerites with large white petals But no place set aside to doze.
I remember, I remember Kinloch's bakery was next door. The tall trees and meadow remain, But the shop and house are no more.
I took some plants, dug up some fern When the house granddad built was sold. They took root and each Spring emerge With treasured memories, like gold.
