"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Sunday Reflection

    I always think of Sunday as being the end to the week, a time to rid oneself of all the grubbiness of the previous few days and your 'reflections' are always a help in 'winding-down'.

    This was quite lovely; it is amazing to see lavender in the fields and something I never tire of - thank you. Who was the singer? - she brought a new dimension to a song I hadn't heard since my children were tiny.

    Have a good Sunday, however you care to define 'good', and thank you once again.

    1. That's why I like doing the SR - it's symbolic. When I used to write upwards of 7/8 blog posts a day I frequently tagged a piece of music or poetry on at the end of the day as a 'cleanser' :)

      I'm afraid I don't know who who is singing - the guys who put the video together didn't mention her at all - shame, she has a lovely voice.

  2. Wonderful video. Personally, I always find Sundays rather stressful. Have to get ready for another week of work, need to keep supporting the welfare state after all....

    1. Thanks, FI. If IDS has his way your Sundays may become a little less stressful in the future. I'm fortunate to be able to be quite strict abt Sundays - no work for anyone, just a time for family & friends.

  3. Nothing like an English garden.

    1. Beautiful lavender, you can almost smell it coming out of the video ;) To be fair though, I'm not sure it is English - it's possibly French but don't tell anyone.

  4. GV, When I made that comment I was thinking of when I lived in Northampton during 1990, and in particular visiting the home of one of the people working at the company I was working with on a software project. MFI.

    These folks were not well to do, but their back yard garden as well as their neighbor's gardens as far as I could tell were Spectacular. Almost No One in the USA could maintain a garden like these folks had.

    I spend a lot of time on it here at home and Nada ! English gardens are impressive.

    1. Sorry, Kid, I thought you meant the garden in the video specifically. There's a lot in what you say - there's something about an Englishman's garden, however small, that makes the majority lavish time and care on it. We've also got the perfect climate for gardens - a good mix of sunshine and rain.

      A fellow blogger, Old Rightie, has the most beautiful garden. I posted his video as a SunRefl some time last year - I think you'll like it:
