Charming Google 'Doodle' thanks Bjs!

24 comments


Do look at today’s lovely Google ‘doodle’ if you get the chance before midnight . . . with sound on to hear Debussy’s “Clair de lune”! If you’re patient (and a romantic) – and see it through to the end, it will make you smile :)) Worth two minutes of your day.

I found it when Googling ‘pink Hibiscus’ inspired by Bjs’ blog.

This is one of my favourite Phloxes, to make this blog more colourful!

My most recent watercolour . . .

The lake at Ashwood Nurseries

Have a good day everyone :))

Hi Annie, Hi Susanne, thanks very much!!

I love your painting. It looks so gentle and calming. It must be such a relaxing hobby and so worthwhile too.

Off to listen to Google now.

Was quite a surprise to hear the music today....very peaceful painting Sheila and a beautiful water area.Scenes like that raise your spirits .

Thanks Chris . . . I used to do much more painting than I do now. In fact because I like to be out-of-doors far more than in, it's relegated to the colder months.

Thanks Julia . . . that lake is so beautiful: pity it's so far away (John's garden at the nurseries in Kingswinford, West Midlands, only open four or five times a year).

I love the watercolour especially the soft tones you`ve used its very relaxing.
Ashwoods is one of my favourite nurseries I`ve always been pleased with any purchases from there, I also enjoy visiting John Masseys garden when its open.

Lovely pictures Sheila - your watercolour is very good.
I don't often click on the Google doodle but it caught my attention earlier - almost gave up before the end!

22 Aug, 2013

 

Thanks very much Phyl . . . and lucky you to live not-too-far from Ashwoods.

Thank you Scottish - yes, it's a much longer than usual Doodle, but I love the imagination and originality in their making!

Lovely painting, SB. I clicked on the Google doodle and loved it. Debussy is a favourite - wonderful.

Thanks very much Tuesday . . . glad you found the doodle in time :)

Wonderful painting Sheila..............what's a google doodle when it's at home???? Lol

Thank you Gill! There are some very clever software designers around, and just SOME days - when there's an anniversary of someone famous for example - when you click on "Google" to look up something, instead of the usual colourful word Google on your screen, the letters G O O G L E are designed into an appropriate pattern.

The one commemorating Debussy showed a night-time scene with a boat being rowed slowly across the water, with La Mer playing softly in the background. It was very unusual and original. BUT these 'doodles' seem only to appear on PCs - my OH doesn't get them on his iPad. Hope you see one soon!

Thank you Sheila for explaining! I use Google chrome so i don't see any sailing boats etc. Lol, But will research and see.

21 Sep, 2013

 

OK, my turn . . . what is Google chrome??!

21 Sep, 2013

 

Ermmm.....think it's the new Google?? (like an upgrade) Sheila you are asking me about computers? I only know how to work them not how they work....LOL.

21 Sep, 2013

 

Google Chrome is a web browser, like Firefox and Internet Explorer. You can download it for free. It's supposed to be faster than either Firefox or IE. I keep wondering whether to try it. Are you pleased with it, Grandmage?

21 Sep, 2013

 

Yes very Melch. it even corrects my spellings for me!!

21 Sep, 2013

 

Thanks for the info Mel . . . now we know who to ask next time, lol!

22 Sep, 2013

 

Just keep it simple - really simple! lol
