Sherlock and Shakespeare

A Fairy Song

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
All Photos for Blue Monday and Mellow Yellow Monday

After a leisurely stroll amidst the yellow mustard fields nearby and walking passed the beginning blooms of a blue royal madera plant, my grandson who is 4, discovered a few thing along the nature path. I used PhotoShop for this "bug" but I tell you, one simple magnifying glass from the Dollar Store provides tons of fun!

  Sherlock is all set for spring with his binoculars, butterfly cage and magnifying glass!
