Pretty lilacs


I picked these from our yard to sit in the middle of the kitchen table. Our lilacs are called Sensation and they're so much more interesting than the regular pale-purple ones. They were so beautiful I had to take a picture. The only thing I don't love about flowers is that they die. Why can't these stay beautiful longer?

Lilacs are the worst for staying fresh looking. A few hours after they are picked they start looking bad. It's just the way they are. But they smell heavenly! They are one of my favorite flowers.

Those are stunning, Jeri.

I'm so jealous of your yard and garden. What else do you have tucked away in there? :)

Hey Jeri -

Do those smell as good as the others? I was just about to buy some and plant them... Let me know K?
