We’ll gather lilacs

lilac

There’s a lilac tree in our garden which has flowered this week and looks lovely.

I have a collection of Ivor Novello songs which I stumble through on  the piano occasionally.

You know where this is going!

My rendition of “We’ll Gather Lilacs in the Spring” prompted a Youtube search for Ivor Novello performing the song. I didn’t find anything but there is this film clip of Novello’s funeral in 1951.

Lots of sprays of lilac and the lilac song for a soundtrack. And huge crowds.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
