Iris Carols





Deck your Yards

Deck your yards with clumps of iris,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Keep them free from weed and virus,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Don your garden work apparel,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Sing this hybridizer's garden carol,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Garden work we do for hours
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Making crosses, tagging flowers,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Hybridizing work is pleasure,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
And your seedlings are your treasure,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Dreams of glory won't ignore you,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
As seedlings rise tall before you,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Name, distribute, praise and tout them,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Just be sure folks know about them,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Win an HM, AM, Medal,
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
The Dykes is where you want to settle!
Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
