Lilac Time

Come down to Kew in lilac-time (it isn't far from London!)

Not that these flowers are at Kew but on a terrible leggy ancient old bush in my garden. The flowers are waving in the sky; I couldn't even cut any for the house without a stepladder. Still it wouldn't be May without lilacs. Continuing the theme, I was given this book as a Sunday School prize.

Not my favourite LMA (that's An Old Fashoned Girl) but nice to have.
