Lilac

I just love our lilac tree in London.  I wanted to plant one in the IoW but my gardener said it was pointless – it wouldn’t like the wind and sea spray.

I took this out of an upstairs window – the tree really needs a prune but I’m not going to do that while it’s flowering.

I have a hangover today; it was a friend’s 40th birthday party yesterday.  I have also been bitten to death – the bites on my legs are from midges who (presumably) breed in the compost bins and the ones on my feet and arms are random London biting insects.  I’ve never been bitten before in London but I suppose it’s possible.  Itchy as anything.
