Who is in the Garden?
The players of the game stand in a circle- the garden- with face to the center and they join their hands. Some boys and girls- they are "bees"- go into the circle.
Now they start singing
"Who is in the garden, who is in the garden?
The bee is in the garden of roses (twice)".
Meanwhile the players of the game who are making the circle are walking in the direction of dance. "The little bees" are walking in the garden. When the players are singing: "Creep, the little bee, through the leaves and branches", the participants who are forming the "garden" raise their hands and stop. "The little bees" start creeping through "the leaves" and "twigs". While the participants are singing "If you find somebody else, put him in your place", "the little bees stand behind a boy or a girl- a boy stands behind a girl and a girl stands behind a boy- and push them into "the garden".
The game starts from the very beginning.
