I though:
spring is there.

And went out with the camera looking for it.

Lovely, Walter, and you know how I love Schumann. Here's one to go with your theme that I call "Vernal execution." Razz

From Bette

Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most

Once I was a sentimental thing;
threw my heart away each spring.
Now a spring romance
hasn't got a chance.
Promised my first dance to winter.
All I've got to show's a splinter
for my little fling.

Spring this year has got me feeling
like a horse that never left the post.
I lie in my room
staring up at the ceiling.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

Morning's kiss wakes trees and flowers,
and to them I'd like to drink a toast.
But I walk in the park
just to kill the lonely hours.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

All afternoon the birds twitter-twitt.
I know the tune. This is love, this is it.
Heard it before
and don't I know the score.
And I've decided that spring is a bore.

Love seems sure around the new year.
Now it's April. Love is just a ghost.
Spring arrived on time,
only what became of you, dear?
Spring can really hang you up the most.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

Love came my way. I thought it would last.
We had our day, now it's all in the past.
Spring came along, a season of song,
full of sweet promise
but something went wrong.

Doctors once prescribed a tonic.
Sulfur and molasses was the dose.
Didn't help one bit.
My condition must be chronic.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

All alone, the party is over.
Old man winter was a gracious host.
But when you keep praying
for snow to hide the clover,
spring can really hang you up the most.

Wonderful chord changes on that one.

Thanks, Letty.

Well, outside our place, the farmers have been quite busy: the aspergus will grow fine .... with the help of St. Mary :wink:

And the forsythias begin showing the pretty yellow colour as well

I like that building(s), though the narcissus aren't in blossom yet there

It seems though - looking in the entrance - that someone is starting gardening

Oooh. There's something about the composition and colors on this one that I really like. As I've said on architecture and art threads, I can't say why I like, just know it when I see it.

I would love this one as a print.

No problem. I easily could send the data on a cd (or a print, but that would by in centimeter x centimeter :wink: ).

Walter, that is what I call a breathing tour. Perfectly enchanting and such memories of Virginia, that when I took a nap I dreamed of the forsythe in spring and how I use to play within the tunnel made by the intercepting branches of yellow.

What a total surprise to find that Schumann wrote "The Happy Farmer", too. I learned that on piano as a kid and can hear the bright notes in my inward eye. Do you know if these are the words to it:

The Happy Farmer (words provided by Mary Margaret Haraden)



The happy farmer goes out to his fields,

He hoes the weeds and sows the seeds

And stomps the bug.



The happy farmer goes out to his fields,

He hoes the weeds and sows the seeds

And stomps the bug.



No time to rest, or take a little nap.

The happy farmer goes out to his fields,

He hoes the weeds and sows the seeds

And picks the fruit.

And picks the fruit.

I can right click, copy with your permission. If I print it out on good paper and mail to you, would you sign it for me? Then I can frame it.

It would be perfect for my quiet space.

PM'ed you a better idea.

I've photgraph in the RAW-formate, pics are 30 MB, and store them locally as JPEG ( about 3 million).

From the JPEG-data an emlarged detail of said photo:
