My music is special for Valentines day - dedicated to my Soul Mate and Loving Wife Julie.

This weeks choice is from Craver  - SOLID COLOUR.

My Header

As tomorrow is Valentines Day - 14th Feb,  My SOLID COLOUR  is a loving message to my Darling Wife and Soulmate Julie.
This was taken a year ago in Nottinghams Castle grounds.
There was this huge heart shape balloon tethered to the ground, and if you donated money to charity you could have a message shone upon it for 5 minutes

The timing for this choice Solid Colour happened just at the right moment to co-insde with this special date of LOVE.

My Post Pics

Another photo for LOVE and SOLID COLOUR - on one of our cruises we saw this bridge and lovers were putting these locks on the bridge to show their love for each other.

For this SOLID COLOUR = let me take you back in time - to the early 1900s, when there were few motor cars about - with transport of Horse and cart  also  the new Trams.

Here we see the Solid Colour of an old style Red Post Box.

 Here we have the SOLID COLOUR of a Mecanopsis - A Blue Himalayan Poppy.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY  to all the loving couples out in Blogland 

Please go visit the other HEADBANGERS on my sidebar - near my shield and see their take on Cravers SOLID COLOUR.

My choice for next week 20-02-13 is = THE 2 OF US.

Perfect header, you are so romantic!

Craver Vii said...

You're such a romantic! I like the idea of lovers' locks on the bridge. I wonder how such a thing gets started, so that it catches on. I found that whole idea to be very amusing.

These are marvelous examples of solid colors, but the greatest lesson in this post is finding out what a true romantic you are.

Mac, I hope you are having a wonderful day with your sweetheart. Mine has just begun and I will be spending the day working (sigh):( I love the balloon, I have been hiding caramel treats around the house all week for hubby to find. Maybe we will go to lunch today. Anyway, Happy Valentines day to you and your sweetie!

It was a good night. Probably better than this years, although not as cold.

That's the best Valentine I have ever seen. Great job and I know your darling wife loved every minute of it.

Beautiful tribute to Julie, Mac. Loved the song too (new one to me), and your vanity plates series.
