Autumn firework











This dahlia was painted by the immensely talented (not to mention utterly lovely) Kirsty Lorenz, whose stunning flower portraits are guaranteed to leap off your wall (in the sense that they are beautiful and arresting, not in the sense that they are likely to fall down and render your small child unconscious).

And hey, she’s just started selling giclee prints.

Bring back syllabic singing!

That’s one note for one word. Not seventeen notes for a monosyllable.

(Oh, and bring back Gregorian chants whilst you’re at it. They’re kinda fun.)
