Sting...but not from a bee


...a meme where you match photos to song lyrics

For this week...the song lyrics of Yellow Rose of Texas came to mind, I opted for this song instead. [Besides the yellow Rose of Texas is a woman]..this week's chosen song always reminds me of my parents and their deep bond between each other. Tho...the fields of gold with mom and dad were roses...yellow fields of roses! Not barley as the lyrics go...[my dad's favorite flower was the yellow rose and he literally had a field of them; from lemony yellow to sunset golds] So, naturally, I plant yellow roses in honor of my father [my mom's favorite color by the way, was pink...I too have pink roses. LOL]

Sting's FIELDS OF GOLD you tube link

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in the fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in the fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in the fields of gold
We'll walk in the fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in the fields of gold

  10. Yellow roses are my very favorite - beautiful flowers, all of them! Great song, too.

    Thanks for coming to visit my flowers as well.

  11. Hi Anni!.. You know? I just saw a beautifully wrapped bouquet of yellow roses for sale in a store recently, that I'd stopped in front of and thought, "Oh could I?"... But at the time, we had just celebrated Easter, and we would be celebrating Dear Daughter's birthday very soon thereafter, so.. with my budget, such as it is at the moment.. I had to pass them by, and think "maybe some other time". I keep telling myself that someday I WILL treat myself, and well.. hopefully, "one of these days" I WILL! Love all your beautiful photos! Have a great weekend! ~tina

  12. Beautiful roses to go with a lovely song, Anni. I'm sure your father would be proud of your yellow roses.
