“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!”
Ok, ok, so maybe it’s more like the second ‘most wonderful time of the year’ since I know that honor really goes to Christmas.
But, I honestly cannot properly convey to you just how much I love Spring and, most especially, when my lilacs are finally blooming. I snip them and bring them inside and literally bury my nose in the blossoms every time I walk by. It’s like they call out to me. My only complaint is that, like Christmas, it’s over too quickly.
So, I thought that I would celebrate this fleeting moment in time by putting together a little collection for you of lovely lilac inspired ideas and inspiration.
