May, they plant over 100,000 blooms To quilt the gardens, as they choose.
Volunteers by the scores plant each flower to sew Creating a masterpiece to burst into blooms.
People from all over the nation and globe Come to look at the quilt gardens, enjoy and behold. Beautiful blooms that form gardens all patterned with color And each tells a story of the garden where they’re laid.
The weather affects them as no regular quilt would, And critters enjoy munching on them at will (a hazard of the artform) But no matter how wind-blown, or gnawed on, or drenched These quilts weather it all in beautiful form.
So as you drive the Heritage Trail this summer, and wonder what should you see Take time for the Quilt Gardens. You’ll be glad – so will we.
