~Heavenly Scent of Lilacs~

I know I said I wasn't going to be posting much, but while out working in my yard this afternoon I decided to cut some of my lilacs to enjoy and share with you.  I've always loved their beauty and their scent......it's heavenly!  I really like the combination of the purple lilacs in the aqua canning jars.

The weather here has been so beautiful the past few days and I'm trying to be out in it as much as possible working in my flowerbeds and garden.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

This shot has a bee that kept buzzing the flowers while I was taking photos:-)

I also brought some in to put on my dining room table.

I hope all you Moms out there have a wonderful day:-)

  1. These are gorgeous! I wish I had something to clip besides rosemary and mint. Our home and yard are only a year old so it will have to wait until my baby plants have grown up. I bet they smell divine!
    Happy Mother's Day♥

  18. Oh how I miss the fragrant air where there are lilacs blooming in every yard. I live in the desert southwest and there are no beautiful lilacs that grow here. I was from Utah, where they were plentiful in late spring, and they smelled so good! Happy Mother's day to you!

  20. Gorgeous! My lilacs have just flowered in the last few days, but I have so few that I am afraid to cut any. Maybe just 1 or two stems tomorrow - you might have just inspired me!
