Lavender blues
Lavender blues

Some weeks ago, the Lavender was blossoming and was frequently visited by all sorts of bumblebees and butterflies. It inspired me to make some pictures using my 50mm lens and an extension tube of 36mm. The consequence was that I had to get very close to the subject. Only once a Green Veined White let me!
 
The Lavender made me think of an old English nursery rhyme and of David Bowies “heroes”. Both inspired me to make the following poem/song.
 
 

        lavender’s blue, white’s veins are green
        when he is king, she will be queen
        but nothing can keep them together
        cause she’ll fly away
        they are my heroes, for ever and ever
        if they could steal time, just for one day

 
 
 

 
 

        lavender’s blue, white’s veins are green
        when he is king, she will be queen
        but nothing can keep them together
        cause she’ll fly away
        they are my heroes, for ever and ever
        if they could steal time, just for one day

 
 
 

 
 

        I can remember, staring at the wall
        and the sun shone above my head
        as I missed you, so everything fall
        and nothing, nothing else mattered
        cause my love went away
        we are like them, for ever and ever
        so, we can be heroes, just for one day

 
 
 

 
 

        still lavender’s blue and white’s veins green
        now he is king and she is queen
        but how long will they be together
        and what can help her to stay
        if I could beat time, we’ll see them for ever
