When I was young
my father used to listen to
"La Vie en Rose,"
"Parley-moi d'amour"
"Mon coeur est un violon"
" Ma Priere"
" Sleepy Lagoon"
"Autumn Leaves"
and many other songs.

His very preferred Melodies were
"La vie en Rose"
"Parlez-moi d'amour"
"Mon coeur est un violon"
and "Ma Priere"

Luckily, I had
these melodies
on cassettes
as I taped them years ago
on a visit to Montreal.
I never saw them in the stores.

I often used to listen to them
and reminisced my youth.
Unfortunetly,I lost them
through moving so often.

Garden Magic

Garden Magic

Garden superstition probably goes back to a time immemorial.Here are some things I learned from my Scottish mother-in-law.

First,to ensure the fairy kingdom is happy, one should make sure that the garden is enclosed.Each corner should also have a protective tree, so choose apple and mountain ash for this purpose. The first tree, you see is a traditional luck-bringer and the second one keeps witches away.

Another tree one should make room for is an oak,as this acts as a ligtning deflector. Furthermore,if you place an acorn on your windowsill,it will also protect you again evil spirits.

When it comes to planting flowers in borders and containers, I would follow my mother-in-law's color tips closely. White flowers are thought to be clean and pure and can therefore be safely included,as can red and pink ones which are supposed to bring passion and romance to the household. Red carnations were always to be found in her borders,simply because they preserve the human body and help keep away nightmares. But you must never mix red and white flowers in a bunch,she warned,as this would most definitely bring misfortune.

Although some say yellow flowers are a symbol of sickness and should not be planted because they will anger the fairy kingdom,my mother-in-law believed yellow is associated with the sun and so must be planted in the sunniest part of the garden away from the other flowers. She had a fondness for yellow and made sure one part of her garden was full of asters,honeysuckles and yellow roses.

Tree called Puissant.

In the forest
stand a very large,
gigantic tree.
he is the King,
the Keeper.

His name is Puissant.
it means:
always watchful.

His limbs expands on all sides,
he is watchfull of everything
that goes around him,
high above him,
where the birds flies.
low on the ground
where creatures roams.

Not far from him,
stand a little tree,a sapling,
who often look at this great tree,
in awe and wonder.

He wishes he could be like that.
his curiosity got the better of him,
in a timid voice,trembling a little,
looking up,ask a question,

Puissant,where you always this size?
no,Puissant reply,
long,long ago,I was like you
a small sapling.

It took century for me to grow this size,
in time, you will too,be patient.
when I am too old,
you will have grown up to be like me.

You will have to take over
the duty of keeping watch
over all the forest
and his creatures.
