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 . 🙂
A wash of colour
With spring there is the inevitable silliness (I insist upon it). 🙂
Lloyd Park is right behind the William Morris Gallery ⇐ which has a some outstanding exhibits. Lloyd Park ⇒ has some pleasant lawns amongst trees and is surrounded by a very pretty moat. Further down there is a quite beautiful mystery tune but I have no idea who created it. First the moat.
At the far end is the Delice café and some more park with an art gallery (next time). Meantime more of the moat.
Add a little whimsy and the mystery tune.
This tune has been passed around for years but nobody knows who created it or where it came from. So, if anybody can identify it, I would be grateful. Meantime it is beautiful, calming and very suited to the pictures.
And, back to reality, perhaps. 🙂
Birdie, birdie on the wing,
How I wish that I could sing,
Birdie, birdie in the sky,
How I wish that I could fly,
Birdie, birdie how I love you,
How I hope that you love me too ~
Have a softley day.
Have you just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here. Wait for the explosions and the band to start headbanging, then bob up and down like a Muppet walking, or Walk Like an Egyptian ⇒, and sneak right past the guards.
And, a few flowers to calm us down.
Meanwhile, at Martha’s Vineyard, a lady sang and some youngsters told the tale.
So they did.
