I say this every year, but I love lilac time! I have six lilac trees; three in the front and three in the back. The lilacs at the front were gorgeous. The ones at the back had just a few blooms each. The ones at the back of the house are more protected so it can't be because of the weather that there weren't many blooms.
This is one of my favourite shots. I love how the lilacs look against the picket fence.
The marmalade jar is a recent find. I was thrilled to find it at a craft/vintage show last month and I know it will show up again in photos around my home. I tucked some cutlery into it for now but it will get filled with flowers (and probably other things) too.
Lilacs don't last long - either inside or out! The blooms are pretty much faded now but I enjoyed cutting them to bring inside while I could.
I told you they were covered!
I love the detail on the handle of this vintage ironstone pitcher.
I'll never get my fill of lilacs! I don't think there's any such thing as having too many. Sadly, it will be another year until I can enjoy them again.
Just a quick health update ... I had another CT scan yesterday. While I was being scanned I kept praying for it to be good. I see my oncologist Wednesday for the results.
Have a lovely weekend!
