And it continued into May.
It began with Orange Ted, the Thumbs Up Orange Bear of Positive Attitudes. You can find him here with Dione at
My Bear sat on the Blue Chair, that is the best seat at our place.
A happy smile, and he will join the others later next week.
Leaves are also orange… The Cherry Blossom trees have bare branches, leaves are orange, brown, and what a quilter might call “threadbare”!!!
But the winner for the Orange Ribbon was the sunset this morning.
Officially not in April, but close enough to be in the race .
Glorious colour, the clouds slowly moving along, the trees still, the silence of the early morning , nature at its finest.
Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802
William Wordsworth, 1770 - 1850
Earth has not anything to show more fair: Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty: This City now doth, like a garment, wear The beauty of the morning; silent, bare, Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie Open unto the fields, and to the sky; All bright and glittering in the smokeless air. Never did sun more beautifully steep In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill; Ne’er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep! The river glideth at his own sweet will: Dear God! the very houses seem asleep; And all that mighty heart is lying still!
