ABC WEDNESDAY is nearing the end of this round and Y is our letter this week. I have some yellow in one of my gardens.

I love these little glass globe yellow birds.  As I was taking pictures of them this morning I remembered a song that I heard sung  by the Kingston Trio.

The original song was titled "Choucoune" and was composed by Michael Monton. To learn more about this Haitian inspired song check out what Wickipedia has to say.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choucoune_(song)

Here is my yellow birds and my lillies with yellow centers and solid yellow.

Thanks to U-Tube I found the Yellow Bird  Song for your enjoyment.

Linking with ABC WEDNESDAY

I do love those glass birds. they are fun garden pieces.
Ah...Harry Belafonte at his best.
My hubby used to sing that song in a men's chorus he belonged to many years ago.

Pretend I'm a tree and save me. That really is a bold and beautiful stand. I've also challenged "Save the whales" people on what their stand on saving babies is.
Anyway I enjoyed your post and photos for the letter Y!

Seriously: I was listening to a Chris Isaak album today, and it featured a nice version of Yellow Bird!

I loved Harry Belafonte.
My Mum had lots of his records and I remember her singing along to Yellow Bird, whilst she was preparing the Sunday Roast.
Lovely memories.
Your yellow bird is cute too. pretty little pond too!
I shall be humming Yellow bird all day now...lovely thoughts of my dear Mama, she would be very old if she was still alive, about 103, I reckon!
Yet the Yellow Bird lives on,C`est la vie!
