'Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through the house,
a creature was scurrying,
feeling so like a louse!

The garden enthusiast
was the first on their list.
How did this happen,
Oh, how did we miss?

Shew! Thankfully, we found it!
The garden lover's perfect gift:
Membership to a public garden.
And, what about this?
Tickets to a concert and a holiday lights show!
Greater Philadelphia Gardens' website
is the best place to go.

On Longwood! On Hagley! On Morris and Winterthur!
On Tyler, Mt Cuba Center, on Bartram's and Nemours!
On Chanticleer, on Highlands, on Welkinweir and Wyck!
On Ambler, On Haverford , On Scott and Henry Botanic !
On Camden! On PHS! On Shofuso, Centennial and Awbury!
