Singing to the Seedlings

Hello m' shiny orbs,


See here -

 Do you sing to your seedlings? I do, whether the like it or not. I did audition for a part in the choir singing 'Zadok the Priest' at the weekend's Coronation. I even had the right getup - teapot for orb, soup ladle for sceptre . I stole my youngest daughter's crown. Strangely I didn't get a part, but I thought I'd share my beautiful singing anyhow. The neighbours are treated daily to this mock operaticness reverberating from my bathroom. Just like Jimi Hendrix, that's my preferred practice space.

So I might not be here next weekend. Monsieur thinks I'll be locked up in the castle for treason. I'll just argue that a fortnight of Covid plus cabin fever have altered my normally perfect state of mind. I also suspect the music used in the clip will flag a You Tube copyright strike, but we shall see.

 I shall leave you with some lovely pictures of my convalescence on Falmouth seafront. I made sure not to include the straight jacket in shot.

  3. Good to see you're on the mend now and keeping your seedlings entertained 😆. I can't imagine why you failed the audition, you would certainly have gained everyones attention !!
    My attempt at seed raising failed this year, only my Zinnias germinated and I had to buy a few tomato plants. Long periods of cold, wet weather, it's certainly been "grim up north" this year. Lovely photo's Lulu. 😊 🐕

  4. Don't tell me you failed the audition ... they obviously need their ears tested if they didn't appreciate your talent! I do hope at least the seedlings were an appreciative audience!
    I'm glad to read you're on the mend. Your convalescence on Falmouth seafront must have done the trick, I'm sure. I do hope they've let you out of that straightjacket yet! xxx

    1. I always tell people Ann - "If you don't understand it, it's because it's ART". I've only just escaped the castle! ...but it was a nice view xXx

  5. Hi Lulu! Finally, I am able to reply to blogs again! Congratulations on your wedding and on your royal appointment! I too had Covid. Not funny. Worse was losing sense of smell and taste. I have been enjoying your witty blog even if I couldn't comment. Keep the day job, though!!!!

  6. I hope you are better after that nasty bout of Covid, no doubt the Falmouth recuperation involved being strapped up tightly and left out on a balcony in the fresh sea air for 2 weeks Victorian style, it certainly seems to have given you a truly operatic signing voice.

  8. You didn't make it into the choir? Off with their heads! That's really made me chuckle. Just as well you didn't turn up to watch the action in London in your current state of mind. You'd still be languishing in a jail cell! :-D
    Beautiful photos of Falmouth! xxx

    1. I am coincidentally in yellow Claire. I did clock later on that all the protestors wore yellow :0 If King Charles wants to invite me round to Highgrove for a wander round his garden & a nice cup of tea, I 'm there! xXx

    1. Thanks Haddock :) I seem to have escaped a YouTubey strike! Hmmmm, I need to record my own music so I don't have to worry about copyright xXx

  11. You are so funny!!!! I giggled with you!!!! And yes,it is SUCH a long introduction! I had to page turn for an organist once for the London Natwest choir (I got paid £30 to do it- was great!) and I couldn't believe how long it was! Sorry to hear you had the creaded plague but hope you are better now!x

    1. Hey Kezzie! That's a great rate for a page turner. Must have worked out £1 per double page x 20 for the intro alone, & maybe x10 pages for the singing bit? ;) Much better now thanks, bar the siestas I am having to have in this HOT weather. Hope you are well xXx
