HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks Kef. The house just seems so quiet and empty, my dog isn't very noisy, and OH is always humming and singing!

Did you all like each other as well as the snowdrops? Or is that a leading question that I shouldn't have asked? But then gardeners are always nice!

Just seen Busy Lizzie's thread yesterday re the opera - you would have loved the performance of Aida,which I saw 20 years ago in Luxor, Egypt. It was staged at the Temple of Queen Hatshepshut,under the mountains, near the Valley of the Kings.

To reach it easily, the Egyptian Army built a pontoon bridge, spanning the Nile, from Luxor to Thebes - the whole thing was amazingly well organised, and to see Aida in a setting like that,in the desert -unforgettable.

 

That sounds amazing Pentillie.

I feel a bit flat today. OH is in England and it's always raining. But OH is back tomorrow.

Morning all. I hope the rain keeps off for the walks.

Dove, Peter Grimes on the beach sounds an amazing experience. The New York Met will be doing Prince Igor and La Boheme in March and April.

Going to Bring and Share lunch after Church this morning. Did I say OH is away in England? Back tomorrow.

I hope all going on the snowdrop walks have a good time tomorrow.

I'm back from the Opera live from the New York Met at the cinema in Périgueux. Rusalka by Dvorjak. It was wonderful. Water nymph falls in love with prince and it all ends unhappily. Based on the Little Mermaid. My friends brought picnic supper and wine which we had in the 2 intervals. It was 4 hours long, but glorious music.

Thank you David, no need for an apology. I still prefer your arbour though!

Lovely stone fountain, shows up the colours and much the best sort of water feature for parents with young children - if any see this.

I saw that photo somewhere before, David, and wanted an arbour like it. Couldn't find one just like that round here so bought this for OH's birthday. It's a bit in the background. Bit of a gloomy day in September.
