Memphis in June

One day late again this month, but it's surely the bride's prerogative to be late.
Although it has to be said that Julie doesn't really have the air of a blushing June Bride (there's a band's name in that sentence somewhere).
Written by Hoagy Carmichael and Paul Francis Webster the album's blurb describes Memphis in June thus:
A rural remembrance done with grace and style. Julie makes your heart leap with the thought of Boss Crump and sweet oleanders
Maybees aye and maybees naw.

Boss Crump was apparently a Democratic politician who from 1910 to 1954 was "the Boss "of Memphis. A precursor to Mr Springsteen then. An oleander is a drought tolerant,evergreen shrub ranging in colour from white to red.
Every day's a school day.
