..and more flowers

The warm weather in the UK (and most of northern Europe) has continued this week. Nature is now wide awake and Spring has well and truly sprung. I’m amazed at the speed at which the trees and shrubs are putting on their summer clothes. Only a couple of weeks ago there was hardly a leaf to be seen. Now the blossom and fresh green of new growth is really brightening up the cycle to work.

A busy time at work has continued this week and left the brain feeling decidedly frazzled by the evening. As a consequence the desire to compose blog entries has been somewhat lacking. A few days in Madrid later next week with my wife and a couple of our close friends should prove to be a timely break. Hopefully then, with batteries recharged, I will be back in the groove.

So with Spring in mind and continuing the theme from my previous post, here, for the bees and things, are some more Flowers – of the Emotions variety.

I wonder, did I really buy this on 7/7/77? The UK release would have been around then, but maybe there was a bit of artistic licence with the date. With 7/7/7 not far off maybe I should have kept this one to post then.

The Emotions – Flowers 1976

You can find this on a best of collection released in 1996.

You sure do know how to make someone's day... There's another gem that my uncle used to play all the time when I was a kid. He also had their "Sunbeam" album too. That one had the quiet storm type hit "Walking The Line" as well as other really happy tunes. Those Hutchinson sisters were something else.
