It's lilac time! Or rather, it was. Mine finished blooming a couple of weeks ago but I'm just now getting around to posting photos. The season lasts longer this way, right? I think lilacs are my favourite Spring flower. I can never resist cutting a few branches and bringing them inside so I can enjoy their wonderful fragrance, even though I know they won't last very long as cut flowers.
I like to keep my floral arrangements simple. A few lilacs arranged in a vintage Mason jar is my idea of perfection. Then again, everything looks great in a Mason jar, don't you think? Which is probably why I can never resist buying just one more to add to my collection.
I also like to use baskets to hold flowers. To fill a basket with fresh flowers, just tuck a jar inside the basket then add the flowers ... or line your basket with plastic and use floral foam.
Tomorrow, B. goes for treatment #3 (those two weeks go quickly!). The side effects from #2 were more severe and longer lasting than the first but overall, he's doing well. We really appreciate your ongoing thoughts and prayers.
