Lavender's Blue



Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green.
When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen.

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so.

Children's poem, author anonymous


On a side note, today is my 30th wedding anniversary. Yes, I was a child bride. ;)

Congratulations on 30 years!!! No small feat even if he is the love of your life. You both deserve a huge pat on the back :) I myself am on #18 and fully anticipate making it to 30 and beyond.

What a peaceful shot. You've stirred up memories of my sweet mama singing me that song. Check out "Lavender Blue: Songs of Charm, Humour & Sincerity" on Amazon... it's got Big Rock Candy Mountain on it too.

Pleasant day!
