These brilliant red Ceiling Wax palm trunks looking like sentinels with rifles at ready, reminded me of the childhood chorus :
The changing guards of Buckingham Palace
Christopher Robin went down with Alice
Alice is marrying one of the guards
“A soldier’s life is terribly hard,” says Alice !
Obviously one of the songs of the British colonies huh 🙂 Wondering now whether Alice deserted Mr. Robin for a guard, Wiki advised that Christopher Robin was a children’s character named by A. A. Milne (of Winnie the Pooh Fame) after his own son. Interesting !
And interesting how these red barks took me back through the years to the song. Posting in response to Photrabloggers picture on palm fronds (last week 😦 )
For this weeks challenge – these pelicans perched atop the street lights were too beautiful to pass by – so I had to click even though I was driving (yeah dangerous). It was a beautiful sight though the pictures are not that great. (I did say I was driving right 🙂 )
