Lilacs at Peak

Fresh from our lilac bush into my favorite white flower basket...



Here they are cheering up the daybed corner and smelling heavenly...









I put them in vases to disperse them throughout the house...


Perfect lavender color against the whites...



I only wish they lasted longer.  Hope you're enjoying sweet spring flowers, too!

Your lilacs are so beautiful especially in your lovely home.

Mine are already all done. We had so many hot days when they were first blooming that they all opened up in a couple days, then the rains came back and they didn't last long after that. I'm hoping to get a post up with snowballs before they are gone too:-)

Hope all is well and enjoy your week!

Lilac time is my favorite part of spring! I just know I couldn't live in a place where lilacs won't grow.
I've been taking photos of lilacs here in the garden all week so I can see them anytime of the year :)

What a beautiful home. I love the use of lilacs and old silver and especially how they show off of the white. Everything is picture perfect!

The beauty of those lilacs, paired with the beauty of your home, makes my hear sing!
You have such an eye for putting brocante finds together and mix them smartly with white and blues, to create a soothing and relaxing living space.
Hugs to you, dear Susan,
