Nature Study - February Flowers 2015

This post is a tongue-in-cheek response to the Handbook of Nature Study's post yesterday entitled "February Wildflowers 2015".

So, I looked out my windows and decided to photograph my snowdrops:

and my hyacynths, daffodils and tulips:

I hope you have enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek look at my mid-Atlantic states February 2015 flowers. Maybe I can post something cheerier in a month or two or three...

In Freedom's Cause - A Schoolhouse Crew Review

There is a relatively new company called Heirloom Audio Productions that makes audio drama productions of the historical fiction novels by G.A. Henty. Last fall I was blessed to be given the opportunity to review their first audio drama, Under Drake's Flag. Their second audio drama, In Freedom's Cause, is now available, and I was so happy to again be selected for the review.


For purposes of the review, the Review Crew received In Freedom's Cause (CD Set - Physical Copy), In Freedom's Cause Study Guide (Digital Download), In Freedom's Cause Soundtrack (MP3 download), and Printable copy of The Prayer Of William Wallace. (Digital Download).

The short review: my son liked it! The long review: keep reading!

February 2015 Folk Song - Ambleside Online

The Ambleside Online selection for Folk Song for February 2015 is The Keeper.

I found this arrangement:



A nicer arrangement that I am not able to embed can be watched here:
The Keeper

The Keeper Did A-Hunting Go

(Trad) Jackie Boy - Master
Sing you well - Very well
Heigh down-ho down, derry derry down
Among the leaves so green-o

To my hey down down- To my ho down down
Heigh down-ho down, derry derry down
Among the leaves so green-o

The keeper did a-shooting go
And under his cloak he carried a bow
All for to shoot at the merry little doe
Among the leaves so green-o

The first doe he shot at he missed
The second doe he trimly kissed
The third doe went where nobody whisht
Among the leaves so green-o

The fourth doe she did cross the plain
The keeper fetched her back again
Where she is now she may remain
Among the leaves so green-o

The fifth doe she went over the brook
The keeper fetched her back with his hook
Where she is now you may go andf look
Among the leaves so green-o
