The Darling of the Darling Downs
by Allan Cropper
Lady Flo, the wife of Joh
The darling of the Darling Downs
Her recipe for pumpkin scones
Was shared across Australian towns
The farmers in the pumpkin patch
And those who baked and kneaded dough
Were all prepared to cook a batch
And give the pumpkin scones a go
Australia loved the pumpkin scone
and Flo became a household name.
It wasn’t due to husband Joh,
That Lady Flo had found her fame.
In meeting halls and country fairs
The pumpkin scones still do the rounds
So take a bow, dear Lady Flo
The darling of the Darling Downs.
