Hello Springtime

by Charlotte Diamond

Hello, Springtime, how are you today?
I’m so glad that you have come my way.
Hello, Springtime, say, you’re looking fine,
I’ll put on my rubber boots and we can have a time.

In the mud puddles, splashing, making mud pies
Looking for baby birds under rainy skies,
Flowers pop up into colours bright,
Taking off my winter coat is always a delight!

From the song “Hello Winter” on “Diamonds and Dragons


Charlotte Snowshoeing


I hope that you had fun during March Spring Break. I went to Silver Star Mountain in Vernon, BC with my son, Thomas, my daughter-in-law, Danielle and my two grandsons, William (10) and Jakob (8). I went snowshoeing on the trails, while my family went skiing and snowboarding. The skies were blue and there was so much snow. It reminded me of my song, “The Mountains”, which I wrote while skiing on Silver Star Mountain. Did you watch the Olympics and Paralympics this winter? How exciting to see the talented athletes from around the world. Canada did very well! I love watching the ice skating!



I’m ready for, you’re ready for, we’re ready for… the Mountains!
I’ve got new boots… and new skis, too…
I’ve got a tuque (hat)…and its bright blue…
The sky is gray… and it looks like snow…
I’m ready for, you’re ready for, we’re ready for the Mountains!

I don’t care… if it snows all day…
I can’t wait… to go out and play…
Slipping and sliding… my cares away…
I’m ready for, you’re ready for, we’re ready for the Mountains!

This song is available for purchase as an MP3 download on my website!

What other song has the same tune?  You are right, it’s “Puddles”!

by Charlotte Diamond

I’m ready for, you’re ready for, we’re ready for the puddles
I’ve got new boots… a raincoat, too…
I’ve got a hat… and it’s bright blue…
The sky is gray… raining cats and dogs…

And I’m ready for, you’re ready for, we’re ready for the puddles.

From “My Bear Gruff” and “24 Carrot Diamond

Springtime brings rainy days with lots of puddles to jump in. The rain makes our gardens, fields and forests grow. Let’s Celebrate Earth Day on April 22 –  a special day that reminds us to protect our planet and do what we can to create a healthy environment for all animal and plant life.

You can plant gardens of flowers and vegetables (10 Crunchy Carrots) around your home, at school and in your community. When I am planting seeds and pulling weeds, I like to sing this song.

The Garden Song by Dave Mallett


Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
Gonna mulch it deep and low
Gonna make it fertile ground.

Inch by inch, row by row
Please bless these seeds I sow
Please keep them safe below
‘Til the rains come tumbling down.

As recorded on “10 Carrot Diamond
