Lilac Favs

                   Happy weekend!

                  I hope you enjoy a beautiful weekend.
                  Not sure what your weather is like but
                     here on the Island (PEI) it is staying cool
                          and rainy for the most part and I am looking
                  forward to better weather soon...I hope!
               In the meantime though the garden is
                       coming along and I see lots of flower buds
                on our lilac bushes so good things are

So, while I wait I enjoyed a look
back at some photos I took in
previous years of our garden

                   Lilacs in our garden

                                                           Pretty lilacs and beautiful

                A beautiful lilac bouquet with
my antique china.

        More lilacs in the garden

A beautiful bouquet of lilacs in an
antique cocoa pot on our screened
porch with the antique quilt.

Another big bouquet in a pretty

                                                                    A collage of  lilac bouquets
                                                      Over the years we have planted many
                                                      different varieties of lilacs all with
                                                      a lovely fragrance.
The lilacs behind me are Preston Lilacs
which bloom after the French Lilacs so
it extends the season. They are also
very fragrant but different from
the French ones.

        A sink full of lilacs getting
ready for bouquets.

                                                   You can see why I am looking
                                                   forward to lilacs season again,
                                                   coming soon!
                                                          Each day there are more blooms
                                                    in the garden as the spring bulbs are
                                                    putting on their show happy to
                                                    have some color in the garden and blooms
                                                    for bouquets again.

                                                                       Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for the lovely look! Mine her on the Cape are in bloom now, and they smell heavenly! Lily of the Valley are in bloom now also and the two are my favorite flowers. You should check the Mackinac Island, Michigan lilac festival. It's coming up soon and there are beautiful lilacs everywhere. We traveled back to my homestate two years ago to be there when the lilacs were in bloom. It's such a special place! Sandi

So gorgeous! We can't grow lilacs here in Southern California, so I will have to be content to admire pictures of yours, which are spectacular.

Liebe Carolyn,
ich war heute das erste mal auf Deinem Blog und ich bin total begeistert!
Dein Garten ist ein regelrechtes "Flieder-Traum-Land"! Ganz wunder- wunderschön!
ich wünsche Dir viel Freude mit den aufgehenden Blüten!
Bei uns ist die Fliederzeit leider schon wieder vorbei...Aber den Duft tragen wir in unserer Erinnerung!

Alles Liebe
