Lilacs Glorious Lilacs





From Summer Solstice to mid July our yard is filled with the scent of Lilacs. A very vintage smell, like rose water, old fashioned and proper. Mmm the whole yard is reminiscent of a faraway time. Don't you love the smell of lilacs? Wherever I go, whatever I do the smell of lilacs brings me home and I am 6 years old digging holes in the front yard like I was told not to.


This year I decided that when they were blooming I would keep lilacs by my bedside. They don't keep well and I've refreshed the bouquet many times but that soft lingering scent is worth it.








Peace and Love--
