Nice photo Barbara! A music teacher way way back in grade school taught a song about the Kookaburra bird, I have never forgot the little tune all these years!

You got it David LOL! Close enough!

David: Are you going to sing that song and put it on You Tube?
GoY members could be your backing singers.
We could become world-famous. LOL

Marguerite:
I guess you've found the picture now? LOL

That brings back memories of trying to get my young children at school to sing it as a 'round' which is how it's meant to be sung! OOOOH dear. What problems THAT caused! Thanks for reminding me!.

I don't do "vocals", Terra,haha! How often we seem to refer to music/songs on this site! Actually, my next blog (in preparation) is going to have the same title as a song, by chance, but will definitely be on a gardening theme.

David,
as long as the song title isn't
Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud -
Your gardens are much too beautiful for that. LOL

No, Terra! It's actually going to be a (Sir) Elton John song................just wait, OK?

'Follow the Yellow Brick Road' by any chance, David?

Oh, it's GOODBYE Yellow Brick Road, isn't it.

Everyone will be reading that blog, David.

It'll be good, just like your excellent Parks ones.

An excellent picture of my kookaburra. This one looks like the brown one, the laughing one. These are around here, but the ones in WA laugh even better and the ones in N.T. don't laugh they just chuckle. So funny we have so many different kookaburra's and they all talk their own language. Thank Spritzhenry for putting this pic here, it sure is a great photo.

OOps - sorry, you're right about the yellow brick road TT. Yes, Marguerite, it did laugh - very loudly! I thought you'd like it! :-) Glad you've seen the photo now.

Aha, Terra! You "named that tune in one". Well, here goes, I must write it now............(although it will be sad to do so).
