My lilacs are done blooming for the year, but I wanted to share a few photos with you to reminisce about how beautiful they were. Enjoy! xoxo K.
Before I brought them into the house I wanted to take some photos of them inside this fishing basket attached to my vintage bicycle because I can imagine back in the day riding down a windy country road and coming across a lilac bush where you could cut a few branches to take home and enjoy.
My sister graciously gave me some of these beauties because her bushes bloom earlier than mine since we live at a higher elevation and I knew mine weren't going to have very many blooms this year for some reason:-(
The fragrance in my home was so intoxicating!
This variety of paler purple blooms came from my bush and were a lovely addition in my bathroom next to my claw foot tub.
I also added a couple bouquets of them on in the vintage loving cup trophies I have sitting on the nightstands on either side of my bed where their aroma helped lull me to sleep at night.
Lilacs are such an old fashioned, timeless flower and I really do miss having them in my home to enjoy, but will patiently await them to bloom again next year:-)
Have a lovely week!
