Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish bluebells,
Farewell and adieu to you bluebells of Spain,
For you are not what I ordered which were sweet woodland bluebells
And I hope to replace you as soon as I can.
(To be sung to this tune)
|Not what I had in mind|
My supplier is very sorry and is sending me 100 native British woodland bluebells (hyacinthoides non-scripta)'in the green'.
All well and good but it means I have to plant them and I'm someone who loves gardens but hates gardening. Pulling up the Spaniards has wiped me out for the day.
But there are compensations.
To my Spanish readers
Please be assured that is only Spanish bluebells I dislike and not Spanish people :o)
