The oldest known version [of Mistress Mary] was first published in Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book (c. 1744) with the following lyrics:Now that you asked...my garden is growing quite beautifully, thank you!
When we bought this house 4 years ago we bought a wonderful house with a not so wonderful yard. My husband does not ever want a lawn so we set out to fill a fairly large lot with flowers and green plants of every sort.
Here is the before and the after.
The after pictures were taken a few minutes ago. What a beautiful day.
How does your garden grow?
