Finally.... our lilacs are beginning to bloom - and such a fragrance they share! Heavenly!
Like many, we've had an extremely early and WARM spring - so the lilacs started to bud early. We then had a flash frost - and 6 out of 7 of our lilac bushes were affected.....thusly produced very little flowers, if any, and tiny ones at that. I was SO UPSET!
But this bush was transplanted out of our main garden because it was getting too big. So we moved it among the trees lining the back of our property. It must have been protected by the trees enough to keep the frost at bay......thus thanking us with an abundance of wonderful blossoms! I have been cutting and giving bouquets away for a few days now!
Here is the bouquet I kept for myself, in a new-to-me favored antique English pink Ironstone pitcher.
I had never seen pink Ironstone before this find!
There below is one of my very favorite thrifty finds - an old heavy solid wicker and metal table that I scored at GW! And works well in this shady corner patio area. I love it because it isn't rickety at all, is quite heavy and stays very firmly planted and doesn't spill my tea if bumped!
I move all my little tables
