I went out this morning to cut lilacs. Its been raining off and on for several days and they were wet, but oh, so fragrant.
I have two lilac bushes - one right outside the kitchen door, and one at the back of the house near the peony bushes. I cut these from the one at the back of the house, since I more often cut from the one by the kitchen door.
I'm delighted in how beautifully the lilacs are blooming this year.
I love having fresh flowers in the house, too.
They add real beauty.
Now to decide. Do I leave them at the kitchen sink or put them on the kitchen table.
