Book sharing Monday today could only be about the Bard himself. So we are sharing Rabbies Rhymes - by Robert Burns, illustrated by Karen Sutherland. A fun wee book which has the first few lines of Burn's most famous works, with pull out flaps and such, especially geared to young children.
My Luve is like a red, red rose
Thats newly spring in June
My Luve is like a melodie
That's sweetly played in tune
Quite kitschy pitures for what must be one of the world's great love songs, but there you go. Lots more books to share with Alex at Book Sharing Monday.
Book shelf sharing is from the 3 bookshelves in the conservatory, which John built to hide an awkward recess. It was quite hard to get into photograph as it is an alcove, but I think most of the books are visible. It is a bit of a mixture - cookery ,gardening, craft and all sorts really. Feel free to enlarge and have a browse.
And just to make up for such a short snippet of Burns - and to celebrate his birthday - here is a beautful version of the song, sung by Eddie Reader.
