It’s time for the final instalment of the 2015 calligraphic calendar of Amish quotes. Hope you enjoyed them.
October 6th 1945 was the day my parents married, with Dad in uniform and Mum in a borrowed dress. Such were the times at the end of World War 2. They have been gone for fourteen years, but today would have been their 70th wedding anniversary. God bless them both.
Fitting then, that the purple rhododendron we transplanted over twenty years ago from their house in Mitcham to ours in Croydon, Victoria, Australia, began flowering this week.
What better way to herald the official beginning of Spring with photographs of new growth, as well as my calligraphic calendar. It’s like a Spring bonus!
A little Star Wars humour to introduce my May calendar and accompanying calligraphic Amish quote. Without further ado, here ’tis.
Oops; meant to schedule that to appear on 4th May, but pressed “Publish” and now it’s too late. Oh well, another attempt at humour shattered!!
In commemoration of the ANZACS at Gallipoli one hundred years ago, I have calligraphed The Ode. This was the fourth stanza of a poem entitled For the Fallen, by Laurence Binyon, a British poet and writer. It was actually written in 1914, not long after the start of the Great War. Lest we forget.
But who was the April fool? Oui, moi. See if you can spot the mistake below. So much for my pride as a proof-reader. Pride cometh before a fall as we all know. Then when you have found the error, suggest how it may have occurred. I shall answer these questions in my next post.
