thanks Dad x

A sunny four mile round trip on foot to acquire a basket brimming with beautiful lilacs. My little ipod the soundtrack to my day. Bob Dylan on the uphill stint. Fred Astaire while the ducks bobbed up and down on the lake. Fleet Foxes as the sun turns my sheer skirt transparent and Led zeppelin as I clipped the branches. Thanks to my Dad for sharing his garden with me. If only Mum was nearer I would have popped in and left a big bunch of these in a vase on her table for her. More about these pretty little flowers later. I am late again!
bye x

I love lilacs so much they smell so good. Last week we did pic some too;
Today it's grey and rainy.

I love your taste in music! The lilacs are beautiful as are the pictures - definitely worth the 4 mile walk.

Thought just as much - need to get me that little piece of software - and a computer that doesn't think so slowly...

Did you do art or photography at university? Or is this just a hobby you developed? Very inspiring stuff! xxx
