The Viridarium of Senex Caecilius

Oh, yes, this is much better!  Please, make yourself as comfortable as possible while Genuflex brings the Chian wine and the honey cakes.      

Here's a riddle for you from me, not the Sphinx:

      Red, yellow, blue, purple and green    
      No one can touch me, not even a queen.


Now that the midi-band has warmed up, you can listen to a  gavotte (6k) by Rameau,  Claire De Lune (12k) by Debussy, or  Berceuse (11K) by Chopin.

Or, you can reflect upon these lines of verse while you wait for the refreshments...

For age is opportunity no less
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
-- Longfellow

It is a beautiful evening indeed... Did you happen to see the fireflies?
