I'm not one for copycat threads but after reading snobbery as shrubbery I couldn't resist it.

What should we have in our folk shrubbery?

I'll start with Broom (of the Cowdenknowes)

Next!

Bushes and Briars

Green Brooms

Bonny Banks of Roses

What about those mystical songs where the young woman "had her back to the thorn," murdered her babies then spent seven years in hell? Nothing like a bit of light-hearted life-affirming folkie entertainment!

Not really folk, but an "old" song, I always loved Wattle I Do.

Wattle I do with just a photograph to tell my troubles to?
When I'm alone with only dreams of you that won't come true
Wattle I do?

In case you are unaware, the Oz native shrub called wattle is an acacia.

When the wattle blooms in August I annoy my Hubby by singing Wattle I Do.

A hint or two might help.

The Dylan one was meant to be referring to the ancient country skill of laying hedges, Helen!

Dave, I see you are pioneering this years BIG BIG thing.

It’s the 2020 ‘Be Your Own Troll’

Why rely on others when you know more than anyone else the things most likely to irritate the bejasus out of you? Cut out the middle(wo)man and crack on with the ultimate in self satisfaction.

Start your own threads and no need whatsoever to rely on others taking part!!

In beta testing, some of the participants have managed to create upwards of 500 posts in a single thread without any outside involvement and, so far, with no obvious signs of mental damage.
