The lilacs have been amazing this year!
I'm so in love ...
Today was the day I finally had time to pick a basket of them.
This is the first bush to bloom ...
I've been very patient as last year we moved three bushes to another part of the yard. I hoped with the harsh winter they would make it.
My reward ... with many more to come in different shades of purple. My life would be incomplete without flowers. Not only is the scent heavenly, but their beauty is a reminder of how lovely life is if we take the time to enjoy it.
Ahhh ... enjoy a virtual whiff!
They're a dreamy shade of lavender :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
