Springtime in Luxembourg. Last week we wrote some riddles...

Springtime in Luxembourg.

This week Spring has started to arrive in Luxembourg.  We saw and heard birds migrating northwards from the southern hemisphere.  The sun shone and the temperature is a little higher.  The days are getting longer and lighter.  Everyone is smiling more and we are looking forward to seeing the azure skies of summer and more bright green leaves.

Here are some riddles for fun using adjectives and adverbs….

Pronounced as one letter but written with three, only two different letters are used to make me.
I'm double. I'm single. I'm black, blue, and grey.

I'm read from both ends and the same either way.

An Elisabethan Morris dancer or clown
Springtime in England

Morris dance is a form of English folk dance usually accompanied by music.  This is often but not always, a violin, commonly known as a fiddle. The dance is based on rhythmic stepping by a group of dancers who stand in a certain formation (often in two lines facing each other). Sticks, handkerchiefs and even swords may be held by the dancers and used in the dance.  It usually takes place in springtime or early summer – around May Day or early June.

From the land that gave the world the Rolling Stones, the Who, Pink Floyd and the Beetles also come Morris men….

Morris men and Morris dancing were forbidden during the puritan Protestant government following the English revolution but were allowed again when the English monarchy was restored under Charles II.
