spring lilacs + soothing scents...




I've been dreaming of beautiful, spring lilacs for weeks now, wishing and hoping that my local florist would be carrying them soon. Lilacs are one of my very favourite flowers, with their soft shade of purple or creamy white, and a light, soothing scent - a perfume I could inhale all day long...

Lucky for me though, my florist brought some in for today, and I can't wait to pick them up...

I LOVE lilacs! My mom has them at my childhood house and every time I smell them I think of spring as a kid. Plus, I'm also digging lavendery/lilacy purples for interiors and fashion.

I couldn't agree more. They were my grandmother's favorite flower, and she had two beautiful bushes outside her window.

I love your blog and am so glad I found it. I am your newest follower. :)

xo,

Marcie - I definitely want to grow some if I ever have the garden space... I wonder if they would grow in a pot? lol... Thanks for following as well :)

Lilacs do indeed have the most heavenly scent. I have a white lilac bush that I can't wait to bloom. But its still cold here and its taking its sweet time.
