The Old Forge (Friday 18th October 2019)
The annuals we bought last Spring have been cheering up the front yard and pathways ever since, and have proved to be very good value. A couple are still hanging on even now, including these verbenas. I've been struggling to capture these all week but have been thwarted by low light, low shutter speeds, wind and depth of field, so for Flower Friday I briefly carried them into the porch and photographed them there (but without using flash). These are Verbena Voodoo Pink Star.
With thanks to BikerBear for hosting FlowerFriday.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Dead Can Dance - How Fortunate The Man With None (recorded early1993, Quivvy Church, County Cavan, Ireland)
(words by Bertolt Brecht, English translation by John Willett)
Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry (all vocals and instruments)
For the lyrics of this piece, Perry picked four stanzas from Bertolt Brecht's 1928 poem Die Ballade von den Prominenten, in the English translation by John Willett (Brecht used a similar version of this poem as Die Schädlichkeit von Tugenden in his 1939 play Mother Courage and Her Children, and a slightly different version as Salomon-Song in his 1928 Threepenny Opera, act III, number 18). Perry then set them to music for a Temenos Academy production of the play. It was only the second time such permission was granted by the Brecht estate, the previous one being in 1963. - Wikipedia
Needing a little Neoclassical Neo-Medieval Dark Wave music in my life I played the album Into The Labyrinth on this day - this was the final track.
