It is only a tiny garden

author of text

Love songs using the imagery of birds, roses and gardens were a popular facet of Edwardian and Georgian ballads, and Haydn Wood was clearly as partial to them as anybody. Along with the likes of ‘Roses of Picardy’ and ‘Love’s Garden of Roses’, this further example helped keep up spirits by providing a reminder of the beauty of nature during the harsh days of World War I.
