GAR­DEN­ING SONG

Evergreen - - Percy's Post Bag -

Anne Jemp­son from Streat­ley in Bed­ford­shire asks if any­one can help with a song she re­mem­bers from ju­nior school, part of which went as fol­lows: Lit­tle brown houses, now what do

you hold? Trea­sures of sil­ver and pur­ple and

gold. Here is king daf­fodil, queen hy­acinth, Cro­cus princesses all in a row.
