Buttercups and daisies...

By angelamary
Ever since I've taken this shot, a song has hovered at the back of my mind... an Olde England folk tune, childs tune... 'Singing something, something, buttercups and daisies...'... with 'hey-ho's' and possibly 'fol-de rol's'... Or could be I need more sleep than I'm getting...

Maybe Anthony Newley's Strawberry Fair?
"As I was going to Strawberry Fair,
Ryeful, Ryeful, come and get an eyeful,
I met a maid with a basket of wares
Ryeful, Ryeful, Fol da diddle dee" . . . "Won't be 'round tomorrow, donkeys pinched all the strawberries"
Or words to that effect.
Nice shot, nice memories for me too.

Thanks Chris! Bit of poetic license there! Smile But I think you might be right! 'Strawberries'... 'buttercups and daisies'... same differance! They scan!

I just wish I could say that's the end of that... but... now I know the words!!! (Ish!) Smile

I love the brighness of this photo. Very spring-like. Shame about the brown leaf thing, but I love the framing. Great shot.
