They are definitely among the most regal of flowers.
Someone described them as having heaven's perfume and that is most apt.
Truly, I can stick my entire nose into their delicate lavender blossoms and feel quite enthralled.
In one house of long ago, during the years when our kids were small, I'd send them out to gather huge bouquets of lilacs from an empty house near our own.
Then, I'd place the lovely lilacs in vases in just about every room in our home.
The blooms don't last long but the fragrance while they survive really is like "heaven's perfume."
Right now, there is a bouquet of lilacs on a kitchen counter.
My daughter cut them for me from bushes in her yard.
For the "vase," I chose an old Mason jar with a turquoise tinge to it.
(The stargazer lilies still take center stage on the kitchen table, adding even more fragrance to the air!)
Flowers are among spring's most cherished gifts.
DO YOU HAVE LILACS WHERE YOU LIVE? DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THEIR BACKGROUND?
