Z Is For Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah




Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay


The Disney classic song from Song of the South film sums up this day perfectly.  We have plenty of sunshine and a wonderful day after buckets of rain.  This photo was taken at Coombe Abbey Country Park this morning.  

Thank you ABC Wednesday team!  I joined in late in the year.  It has been such fun to take part. I look forward to another round.  

For more photos featuring the letter 'Z', please follow the ABC Wednesday link.

This reminds me of a scene from "The Notebook." Beautiful place.

oh yes, what janet said! beautiful picture and now i'm going to be singing that song!
did you know that song of the south is banned here in the u.s.? people think it wrongly portrays slaves as being happy. we are so politically correct over here that it's crazy. i bought a bootleg copy off ebay and love it! such a classic. we've been to the joel harris cabin, the creator of the uncle remus stories, in georgia...so neat!

When I was growing up I had the 45rpm single of Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.

Perfect day! I bet your relatives in Melbourne are a little horrified at the weather. The good thing is that there are only really a handful of days when it's so extreme, you just have to grin and bear it, AND get an air conditioner haha!

Looks like a beautiful day indeed. Now, I'm going to be humming that tune for awhile!

in my view most scenes are improved by ducks, swans and even the odd goose. Looks a great sopt to spend some time.

That is a lovely take on Z, and cheery too! (I must take you up on your idea of joining ABC:) I haven't heard that song in ages, I used to hum it quite a lot when younger, oh nostalgia.

It's a fun song for a fun post - so cheerful to see all the swans and ducks in the water, with beautiful reflections! Glad you joined ABC:)

Wanda said...

OK, you've done it. I'll be singing that tune all day long...but thats just find, cause it makes me happy.

Deb said...

We both chose swans today and you were clever enough to think of a 'z' link too!

Oh my goodness. Thank you so much for your comments. I really love this photo and I already miss that sunshine...it is gone today, of course.

Tanya - I had no idea that a Disney film had been banned!!!!! Gosh!

A lot of you have fond memories of Zip-a-dee song and it was fun to read.

PerthDP - Our family in Oz are bracing themselves for more heat tomorrow. A/C will be on for sure or they will be in the ocean.

Lulu - Come on and join in on new season of ABC Wednesday.

Debs & Leeds Paul - I love watching those swans especially.

All of you...thank you again. I will be visiting each of you in return. Cheers!
