Since November I've had a harp in the house.
A lovely little 30-string harp,
on loan from a generous friend.
I've loved learning to play it,
picking out Irish tunes and adding accompaniment.
I even had some lessons!
But a month ago,
I bought a harp of my own!!
Something I had hoped for for years
but never really thought would happen.
The new harp,
besides being my very own,
is a step up from the borrowed harp,
being 34 strings rather than 30,
(less floor space needed
and easier to play)
and a little larger
(better for my back).
The strings are tighter,
less "twangy" than the smaller harp.
But I love them both.
And tonight I return the friend's harp.
So I thought I'd better take some photos
to remember it by.
Stay "tuned" for more about my new harp.
