Je voudrais du soleil vert

these days i write a lot about music. what can i do? it is for sure, my favourite topic. and today i'm sharing with you probably one of my most favourite french songs. i fell in love with jardin d'hiver when i first listened to henry salvador's album which my mom gave me. it was love at first chord. 

long after i have lost this cd, i was trying to remember the name of the song which i loved so much. then, i heard it somewhere in woman's voice and i wrote down the words, not to lose it again. there are many versions of this song but none of them is as beautiful as the one i'm sharing with you. 

though it sings about winter, its garden and all the beautiful things, i still associate it with summer. for some reason, when i hear it, i imagine summer, the sea, flowers all around the road and myself driving in a car towards cote d'azur. 

probably it is because of the emotions i have with other henry salvador's music. there's another one i love - jazz méditerranée. it has its remixed version too, which sounds even more summery, and brings my mind to the beach in south of france, on striped chaise longues, with lemonades, smiling people, sun and the atmosphere of love in the air. 

enjoy this music just as i do on this winter day with the thoughts about summer.

  1. Good morning, how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are very small countries with very few population, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this, I would ask you one small favor:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Georgia? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Georgia in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
    28902 Getafe (Madrid)

    If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally, I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
