Birdcage Walk

I think we have all worked hard this week.

Shall we just look
at photos of bird cages today?

Perhaps we could have
some background music?
Nothing too demanding.

In my next life
I am planning to have
a greenhouse just for orchids.
White orchids.

I shall hang a choice selection
of ivory vintage bird cages
and the effect will be charming.

You are all invited.
There will probably be cake.
Frangipanes, I think.


  1. La cage aux folles en effet

    WV: colly as in bird

  2. Frangipanes are my favorite! I love the lacy patterns of the bird cages.

    WV:saggib I hope my gib is not sagging too! xo

  3. I have no idea what kind of cake that is, but I'll be there.

  4. I would like to thank you in advance. I hope my situation in my next life allows me to attend.

  5. And will we drink from exquisitely painted porcelain cups? (Claps hands with anticipation!)

    Thank you for a lovely piece of escapism before I go out to work.....

  6. I hope there will be tea too, in dainty bone china cups.

  7. Would it be alright if I brought something equally delicate, say madelienes? It is just the almond paste in the frangipanes is less than agreeable.

  8. Thank you very much, I enjoyed the music.
    And I would be quite happy to eat Trash's unwanted frangipane.

  9. Beautiful images and music, thank you for providing an oasis of calm in a hectic day. Bless you.

    WV kindsyn!

  10. I had been thinking my next life might involve pearl diving in the Arabian Sea, but perhaps I could be persuaded otherwise ... Frangipanes you say?

  11. You got me at cake.
    I'll bring some bubbly if you allow me to.

  12. Birdcages always remind me of my honeymoon (so they feature on the fabric of our bedroom blinds). We went to Paris, which seemed to be full of markets selling them, for some reason.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
