Un oranger sur le sol espagnol…


Oranges. Picture taken an hour ago in Ciutadella Park, to which I will come back in the next few posts. Oranges in winter…
The post title refers to an old french song, about the impossibility of having orange trees in Ireland. Was sung by Bourvil. Eons ago.

  2. And here are the lyrics:
    Un oranger sur le sol irlandais,
    On ne le verra jamais
    Un jour de neige embaumé de lilas,
    Jamais on ne le verra
    Qu’est-ce que ça peut faire ?
    Qu’est-ce que ça peut faire ?
    Je dors auprès de toi.
    Près de la rivière
    Où notre chaumière
    Bat comme un cœur plein de joie !

    Un oranger sur le sol irlandais,
    On ne le verra jamais ;
    Mais dans mes bras
    Quelqu’un d’autre que toi
    Jamais on ne le verra
    Qu’est-ce que ça peut faire ?
    Qu’est-ce que ça peut faire ?
    Je dors auprès de toi.
    L’eau de la rivière
    Pleure la bruyère
    Et ton sommeil est à moi !

    Un oranger sur le sol irlandais,
    On ne le verra jamais.
    Un jour de neige embaumé de lilas,
    Jamais on ne le verra.
    Qu’est-ce que ça peut faire ?
    Qu’est-ce que ça peut faire ?
    Toi, tu seras toujours là !

  5. Looks like the tree in my garden. Makes one glad that there are still round things, that connects the world.
    Please have you all a wonderful, sweet tasting Wednesday.

  6. Lovely! Our oranges are usually ready to eat by Christmas. However, this year many of the oranges froze as it was so cold! Which means the prices are going to skyrocket!

  7. What is ironic about the song's theme is that orange is one of the Irish national colors. This also reminded «Louis» of the use James Joyce made of the symbolism of the color orange in his “A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man”.
