Old Fashioned Lilacs


The kitchen is filled with the sweet scent of lilacs.

 
I couldn't resist putting them in a silver coffee pot.


Their blossoms so dreamy.

 
Lilacs always remind me of my dear grandmother.


Their reflection makes me smile  :-)
 
It was a busy day yesterday planting annuals and filling pots.  A nice steady rain today will give them a good start. 

Have a charming week!

I am loving all the lilacs I am seeing in blogland....I am thinking that I have to plant one at the new house. Putting that in the back of my mind. I love the scent and the delicate nature of lilacs. Yours look so pretty in that coffee pot. Nice touch.

I love your quote of the day... particularly meaningful as we face possible frost tonight. Your lilacs are spectacular and they are at peak here as well... the fragrance pervades the air as I write this comment! Larry
