Easter Trails and Poems!

Posted by Rosemoor Garden on 16 Apr 2009 at 03:37 PM

Over the Easter weekend, Rosemoor created a special poetic children’s trail. There were twelve poems all describing a specific place in the formal garden for the children to find, using a map. Once there they found an upturned terracotta pot and a bamboo cane sticking out of it holding a laminated question. The answers were written on their trail sheet and a letter from each answer written in a numbered box to create the words Easter Bonnet. When they had completed the trail, their prize of a chocolate daffodil was collected from the ticket office.

It was a beautiful, warm and sunny spring weekend so the garden was very busy with visiting families and the trail inspired some visitors to write their own poems, which they kindly left with us: 

The friendly hum of the soft and gentle bee

Circling around the old, mahogany tree,

The beautiful lilies that let graceful bees lie,

Only the bees hear the wise gardeners sigh.


Free as a bird,

Mad as a fish,

Wild as a horse,

Crazy as a chick.


Sunny skies,

Peaceful places,

Rainbow after rain,

In the garden

New plants are growing.

There is always a free seasonal and themed trail available for visiting children, so make sure you ask for one at the entrance when you arrive.
