Lilacs from the Garden

As I sit and listen to the soft gentle rain, I am enjoying the lilacs my husband picked from our bush.  The delicate flowers are so fragrant like a sweet rose with a hint of vanilla.

The rain is refreshing, renewing and nourishing.  It gives us time to reflect.

"Let the rain kiss you.  Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.  Let the rain sing you a lullaby." ~ Langston Hughes

Lilacs bring back fond memories of my Grandmother. She always had a vase of them in the house when they were blooming. Lovely picture.

I LOVE the smell of lilacs! When I was a kid I was always picking them from the bush and putting them in my room - thanks for the memory.

The lilacs are beautiful! It must really be Spring! The weather here has made me wonder but seeing lilac... yup...Spring is here!

I love lilacs. I miss the bush we had at our home in West Point before we moved. I am thinking of buying another bush.. Thanks of sharing your pic.

Beautiful! I miss mine this year. My DH cut it back and we didn't get any blooms! So sad to miss that wonderful smell!

Cindy said...

Oh, so pretty! I don't have any lilacs in my yard, I need to get one! Thanks so much for visiting and for your sweet comments! Hope your week is wonderful. :)

I used to have a lilac bush outside my bedroom window growing up and that scent always brings back such wonderful memories for me. Such a beautiful arrangement, enjoy them! :)

Gorgeous flowers. We have lilacs in our front yard and I can smell them when I go to get the mail.
