Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

Making Merry | Flash Post 316

Button, did you hear the orchestra playing in our backyard this morning?

Orchestra? What’s that?

An orchestra consists of a group of musicians who play a variety of musical instruments.

And we had an orchestra playing in our back garden?

Yes. I’ve been hearing them for some time now.

You’re pulling my leg.

Now, Button, would I ever do that?


It was actually a string quartet consisting of squirrels, crows, pigeons and humming birds.

Now, what’s a string quartet?

A string quartet comprises of an ensemble of musicians playing four stringed instruments.

And these four had formed a group and we’re playing a piece?

They were. The squirrels we’re making a particular high-pitched sound which was loud. It was also hilarious because every time that sound emerged, the squirrel’s tail would stand up to attention. Crows were cawing away. The pigeons were cooing gently and the humming birds were humming away. The four unique sounds sounded somewhat like an orchestra to me.

And why did you not call me?

Because I wanted to understand the whole effort being made by our neighbours before telling you about it.

Please don’t forget to call me the next time.

Of course I will. It’ll most probably be tomorrow.
