NATURE'S MIRACLE

79 comments


Inspired by the Johnny Mercer/Gene de Paul song :
‘Spring, Spring, Spring’

[ from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers ]

Please sing along if you wish …

Oh, the gardens are busy
In a regular tizzy

And the obvious reason
Is because of the season

Ma Nature’s lyrical
With her yearly miracle …
Spring … spring … spring

Every dog wears a bonnet
With some spring flowers on it

Even birds of a feather
Show their clothes off together

Sun’s getting shinery
To spotlight the finery …
Spring … spring … spring

Yes, siree, spring disposes
That it’s all one supposes

It’s a real bed of roses
Wagging tails, rubbing noses

Each sparrow twittering
They’re all baby sittering …
Spring … spring … spring

Truffle & Conker are very patient with you, It never shows on their faces that they are only humouring their mad mother, Lol x

24 Mar, 2012

 

Hi Sue ...
Multitasking again ;o)
Truffle's bonnet might fit you ... it kept slipping sideways.. LOL.

Thanks Hywel ... I bet you sang along.. ;o)

Hello Willinilli ...

24 Mar, 2012

 

it's from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Scottish - lo, sure YouTube will be able to supply a relevant clip!

It must have taken you some time to write the words to match the pics, TT - but how the flip did you get the idea in the first place????

yep, YouTube to the rescue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYV69puN4DA

Thank you Neena .. glad you like the bonnets :o)

Morning Fran ...
... making the blog and writing the words was not too difficult ... the big challenge was stopping Truffle's hat from falling off ... you can see his bonnet was tending to tip to the south west ;o)

Hello Sheilar ..
The boys do think they look smart in their bonnets ... Lol.

Hi Brian ...
Pleased you like this. Thought you were going to tell me that Jamie sang along too !

Conker and Truffle send hugs and we say sorry we didn't reply to your comment earlier !

We're pleased you like the butterfly and ladybird too. :o)

25 Mar, 2012

 

Googled the original words and could then could place the song TT. The doggie Easter bonnets have a 'wow factor'. Conker and truffle are so well coiffed and elegant. They look as if they are happy spring has sprung and you are well again.

25 Mar, 2012

 

Thanks so much Dorjac ..
... glad you were singing along in Essex :o))
Truffle and Conker could hear you ...well done ... ;o)

26 Mar, 2012

Late again,Terra..sorry,didn't get round to it till now..just wonderful..love the butterfly and the ladybird..great shots..as for those two Easter doggies of yours...brilliant ! :o)..I have to confess,I couldn't bring the tune to mind either,so looked at Frans link..of course I know it...now !
I went back to the beginning,so I could sing along ..your garden is looking good,Terra..what is the yellow plant on the pic after the birds please? Looks lovely against the purple :o)

27 Mar, 2012

 

Fantastic blog once again, TT! :-)) I couldn't remember the tune properly until I followed Fran's link either. I could never do anything like that! Though I have used the title of a song to put in a blog as a sort of summary of what it is about but never could make up words & pictures to go together with a song! You are very talented at it!

I loved the photos of your garden &, like everybody else, I loved seeing the dogs all dressed up in their Easter bonnets! :-))

I've added your blog to my favorites.

27 Mar, 2012

 

Thanks Gordon, Mark, Julie, Jordan ...
Conker and Truffle love posing for pictures. Lol.

Hello Sandra ...glad you sang along ! ... the yellow plant is a cutting I made of forsythia ... flowering surprising well !

Hi Balcony ..
Thank you for adding to favs. I enjoy putting words and pictures together... and the dogs like joining in too ! :o)))

28 Mar, 2012

 

I didn't recognise it as Forsythia,Terra..must be because its a close up..and sometimes we don't always see the beauty of individual flowers..well done,it's lovely..:o)

28 Mar, 2012

 

Thank you :o)))

28 Mar, 2012

 

Lovely blog as always, pleased to see Conker & Truffles looking well x

31 Mar, 2012

 

Cheers Bloomer, nice to be back, i've been decorating with 2 of my daughters, ))))

31 Mar, 2012

 

Very odd ...
Last week, I was thinking of Carol as well ...
wondered how the decorating was coming along !

31 Mar, 2012

 

TT, I was only thinking this time last week the end was insite, good job they love me :o))))

31 Mar, 2012

 

You must be a decorating expert now, Carol.
You could supervise some of those TV room makeover programmes !

31 Mar, 2012

 

LOL not that good, dont mind doing it but have to get myself in the right frame of mind to do it, once i start i'm ok with it but take a break then it takes alot to get going again, you'd laugh because when i'm papering etc i play Elvis cd's and my girls can't stand him, just say to them if you dont like it i can go home, :o))))

31 Mar, 2012

 

you have good taste,Carol..rock on girl ! Lol.

31 Mar, 2012

 

"Elvis has left the building" ... Lol.
