Brighten the Day 12 – Here Comes the Sun

Before we say goodbye to winter a little applause for the sparkles and glistens of frost and snow and yuletide festivities. 🙂

 – all three videos are worth seeing in HD at full screeen – with thanks to Lady Fi for making me think of Sugar Plum Fairies with her Frosty Views ⇒

And this version, by Lauren Cuthbertson, for the extraordinary elegance and precision . 🙂

And, then:-

A wash of colour

 

With spring there is the inevitable silliness (I insist upon it).  🙂

Brighten the Day 11

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away ~

~ a new flower wonders what comes next.

Perhaps the new flower would be of the wind ~

~ or be ablaze in the sun ~

~ or perhaps hear the best guitar solo ever.

But, if not, why worry.

Perhaps there is a beautiful song of the sea by an extraordinary person.

Perhaps, if we but seek, there is something to remind each of us that we live in a world of wonders.

A good day to you all.


Peckham Rye Park and Flowers

From stop V across the road from Peckham Rye rail station the numbers 63 and 363 buses travel south along the west side of Peckham Rye Park.  About half way along the park’s length is the easiest way to it’s centre where all the trees are.  The Café on The Rye is to the left by the car park, whilst straight on is :-

Peckham Rye Park Japanese Gardens




and :-

Sexby Gardens


If this is early April then summer must be amazing






and :-

Peckham Rye Park Lake

The lake is at the east side of the park and is a short distance to Nunhead Cemetery ⇒, but it is uphill so please see the directions ⇐ for a bus route.


Spring 2017 with Squirrels and Flowers and Song

And here at the Squirrel Olympics in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, Bobtail makes his final slalom run of the day.  He’s going well and it looks like it’s going to be a record.

And the crowd are going wild. They’ve never seen anything like this and it’s absolute bedlam here.


The Crocuses are cussing


They’ve lost control and applauding like crazy.

And the stamens are out of their seats.

The Windflowers are all of a flutter.

The Poppy Anemones are popping

All the other Anemones are all anemoning

Will this madness never end.

And the umpire has had enough and run up a tree.  😀 

The band is restoring some calm with some cool music and encouragement to go for a walk with a little swing in your step.

.. or spring.
