I will never be able to go in the Georgian garden again without thinking of this!
Bill Phillips: Sorry Mike. This was the day we went with you and Philine
A man of many facets, including levitation...
Bill Phillips: A multi-talented genius Larry. sadly none of his talents are of any use whatsoever.
You had a fun day of twiddling Bill... it sounds like banjo music from heregrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Sounds like nothing on earth from here Peter
Oh dear - at least perhaps they blend well!!
Bill Phillips: The only way they would blend well would be in a very big blender Elizabeth

Haha- a wonderful imaginatively visualized idea! I like the Tifflets and all are smiling so friendly - another good day! - and umbrellas in Union Jack colours are no weapons! And which instrument are playing you?
Bill Phillips: I was the conductor. no doubt you remember the Georgian Garden

Bill Phillips: The video is great but the music sounds a bit odd...not at all like the version of the water music I have, or is it just me this morning?

Hooray the Tifflets are back. We are in for days of fun as we learn of their latest escapades.
Bill Phillips: A brief visit but there is another one in a couple of days time.

I photographed even this old bench in the Georgian garden in Bath, when we met each other (in 2010)! But sadly, then we couldn't listen to such sweet garden music!
Bill Phillips: A lucky escape I would think Philine.

Yes, you are right -a bit Smetana, The Moldau (Karajan!)?
Bill Phillips: I know very little of Smetana's music but this one is universally known!
The whole tone changes when the umbrellas open to the steady beat of the rain.
Welcome back to the Tifflet Twins.
Bill Phillips: I can only feature them occasionally as Tiffo keeps threatening me with legal action over his image rights

I'd love to hear the Tifflet music!
Bill Phillips: Trust me Mary you wouldn't

Hahahah!!! I can just imagine these decorating the gardens of the worthy citizens of Bath.
Bill Phillips: What have you got against the people of Bath Alan that you would wish that on them?
Nice to know you are still daft as a brush, Bill. This has brightened up my day! (:o)
Bill Phillips: Sadly only got older but no more sensible Ros
ah the humanity, the bench Orchestra!!!
Bill Phillips: Brings a tear to the eye Rob
This guy needs swatting ... he's breeding like flies
Bill Phillips: I can only concur Richard

Haha.. If it rains they are going to get very wet if they are playing the umbrella smile
Bill Phillips: That is their hard luck Linda
Tiffing the multitude... this is a miracle Bill!
Bill Phillips: More a nightmare Richard
I didn't know that cloning had really taken on so well in Bath, Bill. Highly amusing!
Bill Phillips: They have little else to do Neil
Brilliant, brilliant, and even more brilliant, best laugh we've had to day Bill. We went to the the Ukulele Orchestra in Leicester a while back and it really was a most entertaining evening.
Bill Phillips: It is like a plague Brian
A collectors must have, is this a limited edition?
Bill Phillips: You have no idea just how limited John

A whole platoon of him. Nerve wracking stuff!
Bill Phillips: Makes the blood run cold Louis
Hahahha... In the thumbnail I thought he was carrying a gun. This is really funny!
Bill Phillips: I wouldn't let tiff loose with a gun...He is dangerous enough with an umbrella

No.... he does not........
Thanks for the laugh!!
Bill Phillips: Haha I hope he doesn't gringrin
made my day watching this one
Bill Phillips: I'm very pleased it did Ayush
I hope that little Tiff was able to scramble out of the way when big Tiff jumped off the bench.

Hovering Tiff needs to come down to earth and join the group.

Call me cowardly, Bill, but I would definitely avoid walking through this area of the garden.
Bill Phillips: I think you are showing good judgement Beverly
An Umbrella Company? Clever, and a bit weird!
Bill Phillips: I like weird grin

Bill Phillips: It's more than enough Fred
