Lovely Lilacs

                               Lilacs are one of my favorite bouquets
                            to pick from the garden and they are
                                just starting to bloom here, so I will be
                                picking lots of these babies for awhile.
                            They don't bloom long so I will take
                    lots of photos to enjoy all year.

                                                                              I love their beauty but also
                                                                              their sweet fragrance.
                                                                              We have many different lilacs in
                                                                               our garden and I am sure I will
                                                                               be sharing more of them.
                                                                                A lilac teacup.

  So pretty!

                                                                      Not lilacs, but they caught my eye
                                                                      as I was photographing in the
                                                                      Gardener's Cottage. I made these
                                                                       pillows from Kath Kitson fabric
                                                                       I bought in Cambridge,England.

                                                                                 Soft and sweet

                                                 I hope you enjoyed my lilac bouquet
                                                            as much as me!

                                                            I will be back with more soon.

                                                                             Enjoy your day!

Your lilacs are breath taking. We aren't able to grow them in N FL but at least I can enjoy them through your blog. Simply gorgeous.

One of my favourite bouquets! You are fortunate to have so many in your garden. I know you have many lovely colours as well. I regret not planting a bush years ago. Enjoy them and enjoy this beautiful day. Thanks for letting me know about Riverview Antiques. I will check it out next time I'm up that way. Have a lovely weekend.

One of the joys of blogging is enjoying lilacs and peonies that we can't grow and enjoying two springs.
Your photos are lovely with beautiful china teacups and lilacs. I know the scent is heavenly.
