Lilac crowns









Lilacs are just one of our favourites in this house. Our neighbours have so much of it in their garden which spills into ours and today, i collected some in a basket to make lilac crowns and to have some next to my bed in a jar. Even though the crown won't last very long, it looks so pretty hanging up. I adore the song Away by Hannah Fury and it inspired me to pick some and make up this crown. Elle then took all the left over flowers to play in her room with. She likes to arrange flowers in bunches and wrap them with ribbon. She has some in her room now also. And of course she just had to model the crown for me. As soon as i finished it, she was hovering over me, ready to wear it herself. 








I heard he is missing in the river now
They say he is nowhere to be found
I hope she sang the sweetest lullaby
So that he was calm when he went down
Angels sing Glory Hallelujah
But he will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
He will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
I guess he is singing in the water now
Breathing in the purity of sound
I know she promised him a lilac crown
So that he was not afraid to drown
Angels sing Glory Hallelujah
But he will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
He will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
Put them all to shame
Blow them all away - Hannah Fury, Away.
