lilac love

I've got a thing for lilacs.  There are 6 bushes in my garden, which is definitely on the small side, and I never regret having planted that many.

Their is nothing like their fragrance.  I spend a lot of time just burying my nose in the blooms because I cannot get enough of their scent.

Even though lilacs don't do well as cut flowers, I still bring a few branches inside.  I figure I'm going to have the prune the dead ones anyways, so why not?  At least that's my rationale.  :)  They rarely last more than a couple of days but it's still worth it.

Have a wonderful weekend!  See you next week.
