The Woodland Garden (Saturday 29th May 2021)

Lupin leaves provide a good barometer as to whether one needs to get the watering can out, when they go curly like this. There are three lupins in plant pots in the Front Yard, potted up one or possibly two years ago, of which this is the largest, and the first ever to begin to flower.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Paul McCartney - Temporary Secretary (recorded June-July 1979 at his home studio in Sussex)
Paul McCartney (all vocals and instruments) except Linda McCartney (backing vocals)
Temporary Secretary is a song by Paul McCartney, featured on his 1980 album McCartney II. In 2013, Rolling Stone ranked it the #36 all-time McCartney post-Beatles song, calling it a "cult favorite" and an "oddly catchy electro-pop nugget, about a slightly creepy-sounding guy looking to hire a temp.  In 2014, Temporary Secretary was ranked as the 167th greatest song of all time by critics of NME magazine. They described it as "wonky electropop that didn't sound so much ahead of its time as out of it altogether." (Wikipedia)
    It's like a disposable secretary, and it struck me as being funny. The song is written from the point of view of a fellow who just wants a disposable secretary, and he's writing to a bureau to try and get one. I just like the idea. I just thought it was funny, you know, asking for a temporary secretary rather than a secretary. ... That sound on the track, which is like a space typewriter, is a sequence machine. I used that to give me a tempo and, again, I just made the song up as I went along. It was a little influenced by Ian Dury. -  Paul McCartney
