Christmas Is Bustin’ Out All Over

’Twas the day before Christmas, when all through the (green) house
The plants were going crazy, bustin’ out of their pots.
The annuals, succulents, perennials and tropicals all loved the warm day
Happy that this winter seems more like L.A.
Alas, snow and ice may soon end New York’s 70-degree delight
Enjoy while you can! Happy Holidays, and to all a good night.
