Lilacs & Transferware

            Hello everyone,

I am still enjoying my lilacs and I
thought you might enjoy seeing a
few more shots.

       Lilacs, transferware and toile.

                                                                         Soft & sweet

                                                                     This lovely old pitcher was
                                                                     a recent gift from a friend

                                                                          Beauty of Moscow lilacs.

                                               Thank you so much to all who
                                                          visited yesterday and left such
                                                          nice comments on our garden.

                                                          Hope you have a great weekend!

This confirms it! I need more lilacs .. and a fence. I have a bunch and many varieties, but the deer keep them trimmed almost like standards. I am hesitant to cut blooms because there are so few. I've never seen a bloom on my Beauty of Moscow and it is my favorite. Interestingly, the deer don't touch the Korean Kim lilacs. These photos are frame worthy .. every one of them!

SO beautiful - and purple transferware? My word how perfectly splendid.

I had a disappointing lilac season. : - (

Glad I can enjoy through you, however! Just beautiful!

Such a pretty combo! I hate to be so predictable but I love the white blooms!

I definitely need some lilacs in my garden. I must do some research to see if they will grow here.

Hello Carolyn. I don't think I've ever seen Moscow Lilacs. Very pretty and unusual.
Always a delightful treat to visit your place. LOVE the way you decorate and share.

Carolyn, oh how I envy you your gorgeous lilacs. Here in Southern California they do not grow well, and they have a very short season where we can purchase them thank you for all the beautiful photos, this way I can get my fill through your post. Happy weekend! Xo Lidy
