Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
There are a lot of theories about this nursery rhyme.
Some say that Mary is in reference to Mary Queen of Scotland and "how does your garden grow" refers to her reign.
Silver bells elude to the cathedral bells, and cockle shells insinuating that her husband was unfaithful. "Pretty maids all in a row" referred to her ladies-in-waiting, "The four Maries".
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to pick every one of these flowers and put them in a vase on the dining room table. It's good to be queen of the garden.
