I have to share these lilacs with you. To me they are absolutely exquisite. My parents have about 5 or 6 beautiful mature lilac bushes on their property. Ranging from the lightest lavender to yummy dark purple.
So I helped myself to some of the prettiest I could find. Of course some of the biggest and best were way up high. You could let your mother climb on top of your car to reach them or play it safe and stick to what you can get on ground:)
I chose the former. Thanks Mom!!
Look at these beauties.
I knew I should have taken pictures the very first day because a lot of the lighter ones started wilting pretty fast.
These however are the prettiest of the pretty.
I had them in a big bucket in the garage and the smell was AMAZING!
I still can’t get over how absolutely beautiful this double blossom lilac is. The colors are simply perfect.
I found this cute willow vase at TJ Maxx for $6.99. Such a good deal.
Fresh flowers in the entryway is one of my favorite things. I love the look of the rustic willow vase and fresh garden flowers.
I was also able to rescue some more vintage bottles from my parents property. Now how pretty does this look in a vintage jar?
I will be showing some more vintage bottles in an upcoming post.
I hope you enjoyed these beautiful lilacs. I’ve seen so many gorgeous posts on lilacs in blogland, I just had to include these.
Take care all!
Lilacs are one of my favorites. Very pretty.
The lilacs are gorgeous!! I am sure the smell is amazing, too!! Love the blue mason jar!! My favorite!! Have a great weekend! xo Heather
I can almost smell them...our former home had 2 beautiful lilac bushes, and since this home has none, I'm pretty sure my hubby will be planting some soon!

The lilacs are beautiful! I live on the West Coast, my lilac bloomed about a month ago. I just love them! I am your newest follower.
So very pretty...I love them..Mom only has one..and doesn't bloom a lot..
Just exquisite! Love lilacs. I can't have real ones because they don't grow in my region. I'm swooning over yours though!
I absolutely LOVE this variety of lilac! I can almost smell them from here! Just gorgeous!
dropping by to say hi : ) sending hugs!!!
So beautiful. I don't know what happen to my lilacs. It blooms but withered soon the sun shone. We have so long cold Spring.
I drool with the vintage turquoise jars. Lovely.
