Time to Unwrap My Christmas Gift For Just You: John Denver’s ‘The Garden Song’

by Patrick on December 19, 2012

Well, I’ve been waiting for you to unwrap your Christmas gift from Patrick’s Garden for over two years now. I just keep forgetting it under the tree. I’m not ashamed to say I’m a huge fan of Mr. John Denver. How could one man project such a wholesome and humble persona in the drug induced 1970’s. But more importantly he was a songwriter whose iconic songs are as relevant and fresh as they ever were.

But I had never had heard of The Garden Song until I stumbled upon it on youtube one day with him backgrounded by the Muppets. He wrote it and it appeared on John Denver (1979). My favorite parts are the background singing foxgloves and the moutheywatermelon and even the thistle.

So to unwrap, just hit the title of this post and John and his merry Muppets will Christmas magically appear.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good growing season in 2013.
