Welcome to the fourth in the series of Challenges.
Between October 1962 and May 1970, The Beatles released 24 singles, 13 EPs, 13 Albums, with a total of 293 tracks.
NATURE IN LYRICS CHALLENGE
Below is an alphabetical list of nature-related words which appear in officially released Beatles songs.
The Challenge is to find which word appears in which song, or songs.
Some words appear in more than one song. In these cases, the number of songs in which the word appears is shown in [x].
Some songs contain more than one of the words on the list. In these cases, you need to find each word and post each answer in a separate post.
No "live" recording; BBC sessions; Polydor records; bootlegs; unreleased tracks.
Please, no googling, wiki, social media, iplayer, youtube, personal record collection [e.g. album sleeves] in search of the answers.
You may submit one answer for one word in one song per post - not two or more songs where the same word appears - and can only post one answer per day.
Entries for Saturday 13 April, and each subsequent night, can be posted between 11pm and midnight. Results, with the number of answers for each word still to be found, will then be posted.
The list of nature-related words appears in a separate post below:

So we have ONE hour to submit an answer then? @Mi-Amigo
I've deleted the above anyway.
I have reconsidered this and can see that one hour is much too short a time for an answer.
As some of the regulars do not come on until later, the Challenge will open today at 11pm.
Members will have from 11pm today [Sat] until 11pm tomorrow [Sunday]- 24 hours - to post their first answer. The results will be given on Sun shortly before midnight.
Each day after: answer can be posted after midnight and before 11pm - 23 hours - with results given shortly before midnight.
I apologise to everyone for this, which I had not thought through and hope the revised timings for posting is acceptable. Also I appreciate @Cleoriff deleting her post.

It's good idea to let it run over to the next day @Mi-Amigo
Particularly as some live in different time zones and others go to bed early ready for work the next day...
I posted early as I am so tired, didn't read the rules and brain dead

Thank you for pointing out, as you said, about members being in different time zones. This is what I rgeretably had not considered and in hindsight think that letting the time run over into the next day is much fairer for all.

My head is in a different zone at the moment dreaming of home 🏡🏡
