It is said that there was an old English home where many musicians and artist gathered back in the sixties...and, the man that took care of the beautiful gardens there was Johnny...and, he was a friend to many and the flowers were his friends...

This album was and remains to be one of my all time favorites throughout the years...I had originally uploaded this to a channel that I created for my daughter, Sarah..but, decided to bring it to my channel as it truly is a ole fave of mine...and, I wanted it to be in my collection...This video was made in the early stages of my learning how to make a video..so, there are some major rough edges that kinda make me cringe, and have even thought about a remake of it...but, these are some images that I always imagined when I heard this tune...and, it remains to be very special to me...

I make these videos to bring honour to the song and to the artist so deserving of. I appreciate so much the opportunity to do so. It is my hope that it will spark a memory for someone of the pure joy we knew in those days when we believed so much the message of that era. And, I enjoy thinking about those to come that will hear it for the first time. For me, that is the true joy of this great connection..

Lyrics:

There's a place
I can get to
Where I'm safe
From the city blues
And its green
And its quiet
Only trouble was
I had to buy it
And I'll do anything I got to do
Cut my hair and shine my shoes
chorus
And keep on singin' the blues
If I can stay here in Johnny's garden
As the swift bird
Flies over the grasses
Dipping now and then
To take his breakfast
Thus I come and go
And I travel
And I can watch that bird
And unravel
chorus --
With his love
And his carin'
He puts his life
Into beauty sharin'
And his children
Are his flowers
There to give us peace
In quiet hours.
