My charming old-fashioned lilac bush didn't produce many flowers this year so I'm enjoying the late variety of 'Donald Wyman'. This French lilac blooms abundantly and the flowers are finer and more delicate.
Like Christmas, lilacs only come once a year and I look forward to it with great anticipation.
Pretty blooms nestled inside a whitewashed gathering basket.
ahhh ... the scent of sweet lilacs fill the air.
A few for the bedroom - there is nothing like waking up and smelling the lilacs.
Instant loveliness in a vintage Leuchtenburg creamer from Germany.
I BEG the pardon of these flowers
For bringing them to one whose hair
Alone doth shame, beyond compare,
The sweetest blooms of richest bowers.

The peony buds are starting to open so I will be savoring my two favorite flowers this week.
Thank you for stopping by to smell the lilacs with me.
