The yellow. blue and green of a Lewes Spring

Miniature daffodils, grape hyacinths, light blue chionodoxa and primroses plus a lot of new bulb foliage and sunshine – Springtime in my Lewes garden.

As if that isn’t enough to put a contented smile on your face, here is a Spring Song (1842) from the pen of that most optimistic of composers, the happily named Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847). It is an arrangement of his piano piece of the same name and one of Queen Victoria’s favourites:


  1. Your garden is lovely Colin, your primroses (a particular favourite of mine) stunning. Thank you.

    And now I am off to listen to Mendelssohn.

  2. Well thanks Brian – my garden certainly looks more attractive that my lacerated hands after spending much of yesterday rose pruning.

    Enjoy the Mendelssohn.
