U is for Unicorn

The time came to find a word starting with U for ABC Wednesday, and unicorn immediately came to mind... and so I share with you these magical little metal unicorns used as decoratives at a cabin I stayed in with a close friend one beautiful summer's week on the popular Salt Spring Island in BC.

Salt Spring Island, 2010

PS. Of course, Pat! The Unicorn Song!

Very clever of you, Francisca! I need to start looking for unicorns for next round of ABC Wednesday. :)

The blurred background adds to the 'reality' of the scene.

Impressive little creatures there.

I almost posted a whole merry-go-round of unicorns from Tiberias.

Takes me back to the days when I'd read stories of unicorns to my daughters. They loved them! :D

You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese,
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees,
Some cats and rats and elephants,
But sure as you're born,
You're never gonna see a Unicorn.

When I was trying to come up with my "U's" I didn't even think of the unicorn. How smart of you, and a delightful picture too.

I like Pat's poem....

Tarun Mitra said...

delightful piece of myth..

Francisca said...

@Pat... How totally idiotic of me not to think of this...That's what I get for posting in the wee hours after being bleary-eyed from working and staring at the monitor all day. The Unicorn Song link is now up! Thanks, Pat!:-D

Your unicorns are lovely. The Last Unicorn was one of my favourite movies when I was a kid - I need to re-watch it!

Delightful little unicorn ornaments, lovingly photographed. Thank you so much for letting me know that the comment box wasn't open on the Today's Flowers page Francisca. I hadn't noticed before. I have now put it back.

Those unicorns are really amazing.

tapirgal said...

They are totally charming! Although I love the colors in the second photo, I really like the composition and the unicorns and unfocused background in the first. That's my favorite. How cool that you found unicorns for the letter "U" :)

I love the fact that the unicorns have saddles - lots of virgins around, apparently ;-)
I had quite forgotten the Unicorn song - marvellous:-)
