Montana Mom,

Welcome! I’m sure I can extend a welcome from everyone here.

Just got back from the coast late last night with BQ (aka Bionicle Queen). We went to listen to music in Pistol River. I have to admit I didn’t really even know the musician…that is until he opened his mouth…and then I thought…”Oh, yea. So that’s who you are!” David Mallet…he sings one of our favorites – The Garden Song. This song goes perfectly with the tantrum flower game…

Garden Song
by David Mallett

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
All I need is a rake and a hoe
And a piece of fertile ground

Inch by inch, row by row
Someone bless these seeds I sow
Someone warm them from below
‘Till the rain comes tumbling down

Pullin’ weeds and pickin’ stones
We are made of dreams and bones
Need a place to call my own
‘Cause the time is close at hand

Grain for grain, sun and rain
Find my way in nature’s chain
Till my body and my brain
Tell the music of the land

Plant your rows straight and long
Season them with a prayer and song
Mother Earth will make you strong
If you give her loving care

Old crow watching from a tree
He’s got his hungry eye on me
In my garden I’m as free
As that feathered thief up there
