It's Lilac Season in our Garden



                                                                            Hello everyone!

                                                            I know I disappeared for awhile again
                                                            but it is garden season and we were
                                                            busy painting our house. I am happy
                                                            to say we finished painting and am
                                                            loving the new look. I haven't taken
                                                           any pics of it yet  though.
                                                                This afternoon,I finally got a
                                                                chance to take some photos of
                                                                our lilacs....I think the one above
                                                                is called Blue Boy and I do love
                                                                the color.
                                                                     On the porch.

                     Lilacs in pretty china.



                                                    It was too windy here today to take
                                                              photos in the garden so I am enjoying
                                                             lilac bouquets on the porch.


                                                               Hope you have a lovely weekend!

                                                                                      Carolyn

The lilacs are lovely and seem little affected by all the snow you received this Winter.
Are's here in Ontario have come and gone, now the roses have begun to bloom...

Very beautiful, Carolyn. I am using the teapot you gave me as a centerpiece at Pink Days In Bloom Sea-to-Sea Tea tomorrow here in St. John's! Can't wait! Sorry I haven't been in touch lately; I need to be cloned--scary thought. Lol 'Talk' soon, my friend! XO Hi to Andrew!

Mmmm Mmm. These lilacs are so gorgeous especially in their vignettes with vintage lilac ironstone dishes and pretty lilac fabrics.

Carolyn, you have shown me my most favorite of flowers and have captured them beautifully. Mine have been through blooming for awhile now so am happy to enjoy your beauties. When I cut them for a bouquet they start to wither very soon. Do you do something special to keep them still beautiful after they are cut..Happy weekend and am looking forward to seeing the newly painted house..Judy

Amazing how plentiful your lilacs are. Gorgeous and different colors. They look magnificent in those pitchers. Thank you for sharing more beauty from your home. Ruthie

I wonder if lilacs would grow in my sandy soil? Yours are beautiful.
