Lilac Bouquets

The lilacs are in bloom and I enjoy arranging them in bouquets. My grandmother had lilac bushes and the one in my yard was a shoot that I transplanted.

Lilac Bouquet

His tenderness in the springing grass,
His beauty in the flowers,
His living love in the sun above–
all here, and near, and ours.

  1. Many thanks Carol for linking up to SEASONS and sharing your lilac bouquets! I know, I see your posts all the time at FB, but to “like” is still different from blogging:) Have a happy rest of the week!

  2. Your flower arrangements are so pretty! I love how the colours work together. I’m planning to decorate a purple-themed room soon so these pictures are great inspiration 🙂

  3. Hello Carol. it’s significant to carry on the torch of your mother in the lilacs:) And a great tribute to her, as well. It would be a beautiful photo to link up to SEASONS (just reminding you the photo link is open this Sunday – May 15- Wed. May 18, till 7pm, Pacific time.
    Hope you are doing well, or …?
