Song

The Daily Post word Prompt: Song

I know when the weather is turning cold. The Currawongs come down from the mountains to have their Winter at my place. This Currawong was in fine voice.

Here is a YouTube I have borrowed of Currawongs for those who haven’t heard them before.
The video is from Frederique Davies https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEXF5djuizCHyga2nbp5hMA

 

Fingers and Strings

The Daily Post word prompt: Fret

And the band played on,
a tune they loved.
Concentration
They finished the chorus,
into the second verse.
Relaxed
Looking at each other
as they became as one
Smiles
The music flowed
from their hearts
Together
And the band played on

The Dancing Lady

Who is the Dancing Lady?

The Dancing Lady is a wonderful Hibiscus (Hibiscus schizopetalus) whose flowers hang from the branches which trail among the tree that supports the foliage. I have many a photo over the years on my blog but this time I have something a bit different for you.

I also have a YouTube channel where I have some videos from my wildlife camera and other bits and pieces.

Please enjoy this Dancing Lady as she dances in the garden.

 

Isn’t it lovely to watch?

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2 – Peter Sinfield

Thanks to Prior from Priorhouse Blog for nominating me to try out this challenge.

Some lyrics just resonate with my being. I love our natural world and the biodiversity that dwells within it. Peter Sinfield has a way of painting a world with his words and music.

“He strolls the speckled toadstool way
To join the elfin court in play
The brown owl hoots upon the oak
The foxes howl and the green frogs croak
As through the wood to a marvelous moon
He blows the notes of an elfin tune”

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1 – Jimi Hendrix

Thanks to Prior from Priorhouse Blog for nominating me to try out this challenge.

I usually have photos of all sorts of stuff, so thinking of a quote to share is different. My first comes from Jimi Hendrix. His words conjure images that can float with the music.

Little Wing

“Well, she’s walking through the clouds,
With a circus mind that’s running wild,
Butterflies and Zebras,
And Moonbeams and fairy tales.
That’s all she ever thinks about.
Riding with the wind.”

Music

The theme for Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge is Music

What a difficult challenge as I have had music in my life ever since I was born. There was always music playing in the house, whether it was vinyl records or my Mother playing piano. This has been the source of my inspiration as I have been playing guitar since I was about 12 or 13 I think with my best mate Greg, since passed. All through school with the mates in the music class, Steven and Martin playing when we could. Yep Rock ‘n’ Roll of course!! Then with my best mate Michael we would play all the time. Nowadays I just pick up one of guitars and as I live in the bush, can turn it up and belt out a tune or two, mainly Rolling Stones songs.

Here is my first electric guitar and the last one I bought.

The person I have had in my life since I was four, David, an artist, drew this poster for me when we were still in school. I found it a few years ago, had it framed and it now sits on my loungeroom wall with pride.

I took these photos a few moments ago but have a wealth of music to choose from. I have almost nine hundred CD’s and hundreds of vinyl records plus music book and magazines so I had to limit myself as you can well understand.
