Volcanic ash

Still trapped in the UK, should fly out to Marrakech tomorrow instead, if the volcanic ash cloud moves away. On our round trip to the airport at 4am this morning I noticed all the lilacs are out. Saw so many all pretty in deep purple, lilac and white. Hope I don't miss my chance to collect a basket full from my Dads trees this year.

Fingers and toes crossed that the ash cloud lets you fly out tomorrow. My friend goes to Morocco, all being well on Wednesday, i'm very jealous of you both. Hope you have a wonderful time, can't wait to see all your pics!

How do I never see lilacs. I must have my eyes closed as I wander around London. I hope you made it away from Londontown.
