We'll gather lilacs...




......in the Spring again...




                                                               ...and walk together....
.



...down an English lane



                                                                 ....until our hearts....



                                                             ...have learnt to sing again...




                                                         ...when you come home once more...


For all fathers.... present..... and past...

PS: I have the 'winners of giveaway' post all lined up and will post in the next day or so.  Thank you for entering

  4. I have not seen as many lilac flowers this year, not sure why.

    So I loved seeing your pictures, and share your sentiments.
