Royal tulips cause headaches at Buckingham Palace!


There's a problem at the Palace
And who knows what to do?
The plants are misbehaving
And royal staff are in a stew.

The regal band of tulips
That adorn the palace gates,
Have bloomed a little early
And are set to pass their best-bloom dates ...
Before the Royal Wedding, on April 29.

But in reality it's nature
Following her role
And a warmer Feb than usual
Has put the Palace in a hole!

  5. Cute little ditty. I am sure the palace will find some bloomers to plant for the big event.
