For all those who feel a little lost right now… maybe you just haven’t found your Peter Pan yet.
Tuneful Tuesday Week 93: “Bloom’n’Grow Forever!”
It’s mother’s day week at Bloom’n’Grow Florist. Time to hunker down, endure some sleepless nights, and make thousands of moms happy! In honor of all of our hard work, here is Bloom’n’Grow’s namesake song. 🌸
Tuneful Tuesday Week 87: “Das Veilchen” by Mozart
A violet in the meadow stood,
with humble brow, demure and good,
it was the sweetest violet.
There came along a shepherdess
with youthful step and happiness,
who sang, who sang
along the way this song.
Oh! thought the violet, how I pine
for nature’s beauty to be mine,
if only for a moment.
for then my love might notice me
and on her bosom fasten me,
I wish, I wish
if but a moment long.
But, cruel fate! The maiden came,
without a glance or care for him,
she trampled down the violet.
He sank and died, but happily:
and so I die then let me die
for her, for her,
beneath her darling feet
Poor little violet.
It was the sweetest violet.
Tuneful Tuesday Week 85: The Parting Glass
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and this is one of my favorite Irish tunes. The mixture of melancholy and nostalgia really speaks to my heart.
This song from Toy Story 2 always pulls at my heart strings…. the story of a loved toy doll whose owner grows older and loses interest in her but then one day the owner finds the toy and hugs it once again. The love, the nostalgia, and the beautiful story of loyalty just gives me all the feels.
Merry Christmas everyone!
My gift to each of you is my most requested Christmas song. One year I didn’t program this on my annual Christmas concert and there was a bit of an uproar. Now I make sure to end each concert with O Holy Night.
May this holiday bring you peace, happiness, and health.
All my love to you!
Christmas is almost here! Here’s a little ditty to bring some holiday cheer.
