Da Ba Dee Da Ba Die Da Ba Dee Da Ba Die
Blue is such a marvellous colour, as my plumbago auriculata so aptly demonstrates, and quite rare in the natural world.
Yes, this is autumn in the Western Cape. Winter is just around the corner: winter solstice 21st June. But my little plumbago could care less. He’s going to flourish regardless.
Original song by Eiffel 65, with lyrics, Blue (Da Ba Dee).
And, because who can ever tell what they are singing, listen to, “I’m Blue, if I was green I would die” with funny suggested lyrics!
post script: I have to add a caveat here: I can’t remember if I recently read a blog post similar to this, or if I just found the amusing ‘Blue’ lyrics surfing Youtube. So, if you’re reading this and getting miffed that I filched your idea, my sincere apologies and please let me know in the comments; I will gladly add a reference to you here.
