Happy Birthday Robert Burns

Robert Burns with Red Plastic Flower

Robert Burns would have been 254 today. Some are taken from us much too soon.

This was taken last summer during the Olympic Games in London. The red flower? I’m not absolutely sure, but I think it was the work of this Brazilian art project, Rio Occupation London, who were quite busy in the British capital during the Games with caipirinha-charged guerrilla art, street performances and concerts to ultimately create what they called an “endless poem”.

Do you think Burn ever wore a similar red bonnet?

    Thank goodness for guerrilla art, I say – la chapeau rouge is a great improvement to the dour bronze 🙂

      I wholeheartedly agree. That’s why I went out of my way to cross that park and snap the picture. 🙂
