Lilacs & Tulips

After roses, lilacs and tulips are two of my favorite flowers. To me they are the embodiment of all the wonders of spring. Where I grew up, it was truly spring when the little village would smell of lilacs for days on end.
I am totally obsessed with this arrangement that Thomas did for the coffee table. Lilacs and tulips in shades of lilac bien sur.

My lilac bush had buds right now -can't wait to bring the blooms inside.

Mine do too! I hope they bloom this year. After three years I really want to be able to pick some from my own garden.

So lovely with the black vase - I saw my first spring lilacs yesterday on the side of the road, with a robin perched nearby! I literally stopped the car. Joy has come to the garden. Welcome spring!

I love almost everything about living in Atlanta, but I desperately miss the lilacs that could be found everywhere in my Connecticut teenage years (and then my Boston years as an adult).

Last year, I found some lilac branches at the local Wholefoods, and although it was beautiful, the scent was so faint, it made me realize that the allure of the lilac is in its one of a kind scent.

Did you ever consider opening a florist shop?
My word, I am utterly in love with that arrangement and the scent if there ever were a button to push on my keyboard, I would press it often! Ahhh!
The container makes it perfectly posh.
