Edelweiss by the Von Trapp Family Singers

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen for this post is a glorious 3 minute clip of the Von Trapp Family Singers...Edelweiss.  These are the great grandchildren of Captain and Maria Von Trapp.  Enjoy!

One of my favourite movies is The Sound of Music and Julie Andrews played the role of Maria Von Trapp in this movie...and Christopher Plummer played the role of Captain Von Trapp.

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took in a nature park on September 29th.  This is a Greylag goose.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share at the end of my post.

  3. One of my favourites too, in 1968 I took one of our daughters and her friends to see the movie, a birthday party outing, The first photo, that is a winner, with leafy branches and the goose with its head tucked down. Lovely, I would print and frame for sure. Greetings from Jean.

  4. This made strong men flee when it became the U.K. television Christmas film after years of Gone With the Wind...

    I love the colours in those photographs.

  9. I remember when Maria von Trapp was invited to a White House dinner and president Reagan mistook "Edelweiß" for the Austrian national hymn. ;-)
    Love your images of the serene park scenes!

  11. Gęsi slicznie wyglądają przy wodzie w której się odbija niebieskie niebo. Pozdrawiam.
    Geese pretty look at the water in which it reflects the blue sky. Yours.

  25. Greetings from Finland! The sound of music is also my favourite movie. In May 2012 I visited Salzburg with my friend and made a Sound of music-tour through the places the movie was filmed. I`ve seen that movie several times and never get bored. The music is so beautiful.
    Have a nice November!

  26. Oh Edelweiss is my favorite song from the movie. Of course I love all the songs and the movie. I watch it often. Did you see the high definition digital showing in the theater a few years ago? It was mesmerizing too see all the sharp colors and details. ;-)
