The Rose

Uploaded this rose from a 2012 folder just to play this duet I found rambling around looking at Bette Midler on Youtube. I have added a second video as it was performed in Blackpool, England.  Heard of that place somewhere...

...Mary waits for Spring!
Mary MacADNski: Not at all - just needed a quick rose for the song.

Quelle jolie fleur, je suis sûre qu'elle sent très bon.
Mary MacADNski: It smells the best of any rose.
It certainly is beautiful, Mary! The lyrics to both of these songs are so meaningful...
Blackpool, eh... Hmmmm ?? smile
Mary MacADNski: Bette is so wonderful a performer but I do not think she writes her songs. I will have to check. Yes sir, a taste of home for the birthday boy - uploaded long ago
Lovely picture of the rose, Mary. Blackpool opera house, it was, I believe, the largest theatre in Europe one time, you name them, they have all stood on that stage, including, me, a few times...smile
Mary MacADNski: It is certainly an impressive room and stage for this event .
Oh, I forgot..I've seen Van there a couple of times!
Mary MacADNski: I hope so much he is playing somewhere for when we have the reunion at Chris's birthday. I have seen him only once from the nosebleed section.

a beautiful image!
Mary MacADNski: Thank you, a bit overblown but not edited so it could be improved.
It is wonderful and sometimes surprising what one finds on YouTube.
Mary MacADNski: I am enthralled with youtube. I have a lot of albums, casettes, CD's, playlists and mostly it is legitimately produced albums. On youTube you get to watch concerts and jam sessions and the like - other versions of the songs we are very used to.

No excuse needed for Bette.
Mary MacADNski: Yeah! A fan. I still have the Divine Miss M
Lovely picture Mary but dare I say it is eclipsed today by the two great videos attached, I've never really listened to Bette Midler a lot but I am going to download these two as MP3's to have on CD in the car, I know Maureen will love them when she gets back from a shopping expedition.
Mary MacADNski: She is such a great singer. I have a lot of her albums.

A lovely bloom.
Mary MacADNski: A little overblown but it could be darkened a bit. I just grabbed it fast while the music was playing and before the next song began.
I am pleased you used the rose as an excuse to show the video.
Mary MacADNski: The vifdeos are wonderful and you can always see more. Hurrah YouTube!

The rose is beautiful; it has to be my favourite flower (and one of the few I can recognise).
Mary MacADNski: This one smells better than any other rose.

Good to see a rose this time of year, Mary
Mary MacADNski: I agree. Some of you English are seeing actual flowers in gardens. I am a bit astounded at that.
A lovely rose! Not too keen on the song!
Mary MacADNski: That is perfectly okay. Music is as personal as you can get in the like and unlike departments.
