Don't Be Sad

By CaroleS
One little rain drop on this beautiful rose -

I was walking the three-year old twins to school in the rain feeling quite miserable with the weather, when a little voice starts singing 'Rain, rain go away..'. Not to be outdone the other starts singing 'Twinkle, twinkle little star ...' and before I knew it we were all singing and jumping over puddles. People we passed smiled. So the background to this rose represents three people, singing and brightening the daySmileSmileSmile

A wonderful response to yesterdays upload, thank you, and a special thank you to Eric (gypsyman) and Ray (Billyray) for their User Awards.

Thank you for looking

truely a beautiful image
As a musician I would have like to see the music faded at the end without the barline
As you have with the beginning
But how very creative and clever.
I am in awe

Yes,it does you good to let your imagination run wild now and again Carole,
