octopus’s garden :D

The corals are grow­ing slow­ly. I’m run­ning out of cro­chet pat­terns of corals to make from the book, so I’m try­ing to make up new ones.

You can click on the pho­tos to see a larg­er image of it, with all its details! :D

 

Octo­pus and young krak­en joined in the fun :D

 

And this is where I must share with you the lyrics of Octopus’s Gar­den by Ringo Starr.

I’d like to be under the sea
In an octo­pus’ gar­den in the shade
He’d let us in, knows where we’ve been
In his octo­pus’ gar­den in the shade

I’d ask my friends to come and see
An octo­pus’ gar­den with me
I’d like to be under the sea
In an octo­pus’ gar­den in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm
In our lit­tle hide­away beneath the waves
Rest­ing our head on the sea bed
In an octo­pus’ gar­den near a cave

We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can’t be found
I’d like to be under the sea
In an octo­pus’ gar­den in the shade

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
Know­ing they’re hap­py and they’re safe
(Hap­py and they’re safe)

We would be so hap­py you and me
No one there to tell us what to do
I’d like to be under the sea
In an octo­pus’ gar­den with you.

 

(When I found out that Ringo was the con­duc­tor in Shin­ing Time Sta­tion I was quite shocked. I didn’t real­ize that until I was an adult. My sis­ter and I used to watch that show a lot when we first moved to Canada.)

 

Have a hap­py Thurs­day! :D

  1. oh yes, i actu­al­ly noticed ringo starr’s name when i was still watch­ing shin­ing time sta­tion. it stuck with me because i thought it was an inter­est­ing name. i didn’t know he was a beat­le until some years lat­er.
